Married Catholic Priests

You can be a Roman Catholic priest and be married. No you can't be a Roman Catholic priest and get married.

The Episcopal Church is the closest thing to Catholicism in the United States and allows their priests to be married. Occasionally some married Episcopalian priests will convert to Roman Catholicism. He is usually allowed to retain the title of priest. And he is allowed to retain his wife.
