l had been practicing sexual immorality for about 15 years, but now l have hope in the Lord and started repenting by Lord's grace. I want to marry someone but who she was previously married in a civil ceremony that is by approved by governmental law, which means she did not get married in the Church. However, she was faithful, but her husband committed adultery. Thus, she decided to leave him. However, he had fathered her child. We want to get married in the Church by confessing all our past. Is it okay for me to marry her according the word of God? If yes, what kind of ceremony is allowed for us in the Church? We are both Orthodox Christians.

You can marry. If this is the first marriage in the Church for both of you, the ceremony will be the full Crowning ceremony.
