Do these converts need to have their marriage convalidated?


Two of my friends are taking instructions to come into the Church. They are getting conflicting opinions as to whether they will need to &quot;convalidate&quot; their marriage after they become Catholic. Both of them are baptized Protestants, and both were previously married to other Protestants before getting divorces and marrying each other. They have applied for annulments of their earlier marriages. Assuming both annulment petitions are granted, will they still need to have their marriage to each other blessed in the Church?
