The best thing is to ask the pastor directly.
Just be very polite, and tell him you'd like to understand the reason.

I have a question. Are you orthodox? It may be possible if you were to convert, if that was the issue. I know many orthodox brothers and sisters, some of which are Coptic. And with the orthodox church, both must be orthodox. I hope this helps some.

Last time this member was on the site was June 13th. Noticing the date of posts before responding is often helpful.

There is nothing in the bible that says who we can and cannot marry, except that the spouse must be saved, change churches and enjoy your salvation.

Natalia, the division between the Coptic church and the Eastern Orthodox goes back to the Council of Chalcedon in 451 AD. The patriarchate of Alexandria did not accept its decisions, and thus separated itself from the remaining patriarchates that accepted the first seven ecumenical councils. Much has been done to heal this division over the years and I hope to see it mended in my lifetime.

I’m not sure where you go to church, but I wonder if that is why his priest is saying it is not possible.

I am one of the Pastors and wish to answer your question
First of all you are Christian who loves the Lord in the sense of obedience to His Word. loving God more than any thing on earth by doing His will always in every situation.
Secondly you are married and got daughter as well
Thirdly why do you want to marry since your spouse is alive and having good family by having Jesus center of your life?
Fourthly In this world every one faces the same problem with opposite sex always if you have constant friendship.
Therefore there is no reason that you need to marry anyone anymore.

One, why does being Christian mean she can't marry?
Two, she said she's divorced.
Three, she doesn't have a spouse.
Four, what problem is that? The only problem she's having is not being permitted to marry.
She didn't say she needed to marry. She Wants to marry and has that right.

Also this is from 2018 and the OP is no longer an active member of this site.

Oddly you joined this site the day after her post and have taken nearly three years to answer.

Nataliakoksh let us use common sense as well. Let us say you come into my house,I welcome you,then say to you that you cannot ever leave my house. Would you stay because of my word?? LOL Of course not! Jesus and we believers Know God's Word,and so let us look a tad bit at some scripture telling who you are,and!!! how free you stay in him!( John 8:36!! IF!!!!! WELL????? Did Jesus enter your life or not?? See my point? Doctrines of men use two methods in there doctrine. 1. FEAR!!! and 2.Bondage!!!( 2 Tim 1:7!!) Hope this helps,My the blessing of the Lord make you rich,and!!!! he adds NO SORROW to it!! ( Proverbs 10:22)
