He is currently divorced from his second wife, who is still alive, and married to his third. He also a Catholic convert. The Catholic church, as I understand its doctrine, does not accept divorce. Unless he somehow obtained an annulment, doesn't that make his current marriage adultery?
It's one thing to have committed a sin, repented, and reformed. But it looks as though he continues to commit mortal sin on a regular basis. Am I missing something?
The answer is that he is not living in sin. A commenter points me at an Esquire story
on him which mentions that he got an annulment. The story is largely based on an interview with his second wife, who sounds like an interesting lady.
