The ring has been chosen. Georgio Armani is making the bride a whole wardrobe of clothes. The bride has lost all the weight from giving birth to her beautiful baby, Suri. The castle is booked (if it is indeed in Italy). The date has been set but it looks like the wedding of celebrities Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes won’t be real.
No, it isn’t because one of them has backed out. As far as anyone knows the happy couple is excited to pledge their troth. They have not cancelled any of their wedding plans.
No, the problem seems to be in Italy. Katie Holmes was raised Catholic so understandably she wants a Catholic marriage. Unfortunately, there are two obstacles in their way. The first problem being that Tom Cruise has been married twice before. His first marriage was to Mimi Rogers. That one lasted three years. He got divorced and later married Nicole Kidman. This time it lasted 11 years. Looks like Cruise was hoping third time would be the charm but forgot that there is no such thing as divorce in the Catholic church.
The second problem is the fact that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes do not have the authorization from the parish where their marriage is supposed to take place. Without this authorization the wedding would not be binding says Monsignor Nicola Fiorentini, the parish priest at the Santa Maria Novella Church in Bracciano.
If they are planning to have a civil ceremony, they haven’t filed any of the necessary paperwork needed either says mayor Patrizia Riccioni. Those would be necessary even for a rich and famous couple. There is always paperwork for someone getting married, local or international, or it won’t be binding.
So, what have we here? Looks like the breadcrumbs are leading to the wrong gingerbread house. Keep in mind that Tom Cruise announced that Katie Holmes has embraced Scientology. Why would she get married in a Catholic way if she has already embraced a new faith? It may even be held closer to home and sooner than people think.
