My story is typical. I married young and got divorced after only a few years of marriage.

I remarried a Catholic, raised and educated a family in the faith, attended Mass, and became active in the parish. I did it all; I just wasn't a Catholic because despite going through the RCIA process, I just couldn't take the final step of confirming my faith in the Church. Why? I couldn't take the final step of obtaining an annulment, which was necessary because of my divorce and remarriage. I was at odds with something I deemed archaic, intrusive, and totally unnecessary to my faith in God and the Church.
