She's definitely not Catholic unless she recently converted. I only know because she told FM that when they first starting talking, back during the time that she was trying to figure out whether she had to keep her promise to God - he told her he'd talk with her anyway of course, though.

I don't understand why they keep bringing Father Matt around and have Chloe asking for an annulment. A. Lucas and Chloe weren't married by the Church. B. Chloe's not even Catholic, and C. A religious annulment isn't the same thing as a legal one, so there's absolutely nothing of use for FM to do here.
I thought we were supposed to assume everyone in town is Catholic. As a Protestant, while I respect Catholic priests I would never seek religious advice from one, so I have to assume Chloe either is or wants to be Catholic.
Also, is Daniel Catholic? (See my first sentence above, I'm guessing he is.) If Chloe wants to marry Daniel in church (a Catholic church) then I would think she would have to have her prior marriage annulled regardless of who performed the ceremony. I guess I could ask my cousin, who was married in a Protestant church, got divorced, and then converted to Catholicism when she married her second husband. I vaguely thought she had to get an annulment even though her first marriage was not a Catholic ceremony.
Incidentally, I am in no way defending the writers, because I hate them meddling in religious matters when they clearly don't know what they're talking about. I just don't understand how it works but I don't recall ever hearing that only prior Catholic marriages had to be recognized as annulled by the Catholic church prior to a person entering into a second (or in Chloe's case, third) marriage.
IDK about Daniel. During the time Stephanie was talking to FM, she mentioned that the Kiriakis' are Greek Orthodox...who knows what useful info has been pushed out of my head by random soap facts lol, but IDK if Daniel's family is Greek too.
If she has converted, which is entirely possible, then you're right that it'd make sense for her to seek an annulment.
@KevC, it's not a big deal. We have to have something to talk about though, and the mistakes of the writers is a common topic.
Put me in the camp that's against Danloe going anywhere. :wub:
