BOC and Marriage
Hello, quick question about BOC and marriage.

I'm female, in my early 20s, not yet married. I have no prior Christian background, but I do believe in God and Jesus, and from what I've read of Orthodoxy (theology wise), it makes much more sense to me than, say, Anglicanism and Catholicism does.

Here's the thing: I'm engaged - to a Roman Catholic, to be specific. Been together a few years. Very sure he's "the one", so to speak.

From what everyone has told me so far, if I converted to BOC, we wouldn't be able to get married (something about it not being recongised because he's Catholic).

Well, we plan to be married next year. So, what about if I convert after we're married - how would our marriage be in the eyes of the church then?

Thanks, all advice appreciated!
