The Catholic Church presumes that marriages are valid, binding spouses for life. When couples do separate and divorce, therefore, the Church examines in detail their marriage to determine if, right from the start, some essential element was missing in their relationship. If that fact has been established, it means the spouses did not have the kind of marital link that binds them together for life.
The Church then issues a declaration of nullity (an annulment) and both are free to marry again in the Catholic Church.
1 On what grounds does the Church declare nullity for some failed marriages?
In technical language, the most common reasons are insufficiency or inadequacy of judgment (also known as lack of due discretion, due to some factor such as young age, pressure to marry in haste, etc.), psychological incapacity, and absence of a proper intention to have children, be faithful, or remain together until death.
These grounds can manifest themselves in various ways. For example, a couple, discovering her pregnancy, decide to marry; only much later do they recognize the lack of wisdom in that decision. Or one spouse carries an addictive problem with alcohol or drugs into the marriage. Perhaps a person, unfaithful during courtship, continues the infidelity after marrying.
In cases like these, the Church judges may decide that something contrary to the nature of marriage or to a full, free human decision prevents this contract from being sound or binding.
I begin this formal annulment process at the parish level for about a dozen petitioners each year. My suggestion to them as they approach the multi-page, perhaps daunting questionnaire moves along these lines:
—As you reflect upon the marriage, ask yourself: Was there something missing right from the start, something radically wrong from day one? Before the wedding, were there warning signals, red flags which you may have dismissed simply as the cold-feet anxieties rather common for couples prior to a nuptial service? Did you suffer deep difficulties early in your marital life and worry about them, but, never having been married before, judged they were merely the expected burdensome part of marriage? Now, perhaps years later, you view them as symptomatic of a much more serious problem, a radical malfunctioning in your relationship.—
I picked this up on a Catholic site. It says that married people who decide that their marriage won't work can divorce, get an annulment from the church, then both are free to marry again.
For instance: A couple who marry because she was pregnant (they have already become 'one') can decide that they were unwise to marry, and they can be set free by the church !!!

And....Scripture does not support the practice of issuing annulments. This is a man made thing...and, therefore is un Christian...

There is one circumstance in a marriage that allows for a divorce...Catholic have to ignore it so they can "annul" marriages, that accordding to them, never was!!!!!!!

Mt 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

In fact, why don't you give us the name of the Diocese that, as you say, now doesn't recognize your children as being born in wedlock. This little "discrepancy" can be cleared up in no time.

No, that is not what it says. That is what *you* say. Please stop trying to interpret something about which you have no knowledge.
This is a very good link and should answer your questions if you are interested in learning about the annulment process:
http://www.archbalt.org/loader.cfm...
**********
I have no patience with legalese that can be twisted to say different things for different cases. The site I gave is a Catholic one, and it very plainly says that if a couple decides that its marriage was unwise (or uncomfortable, etc.), it CAN BE DISSOLVED by the CC.
Jesus said, "Let NO man put asunder that that God has joined together."
Did you notice that the CC did not join Adam and Eve? God still does the 'joining'.
KayMarie
And....if the Catholics can tell, after a couple has been married for years, with children, that the marriage has reason to be annulled...why don't they make that determination before the wedding...then...no wedding...no annulment needed!!!!!

OOps!!!! I forgot....no annulment.....no income!!!!

I have a suggestion and I hope it will catch on.

I suggest that rather than fighting over who has the righteous path to the one god, that all these right-fighters split the prophets and take up share instead of arms.

How about it folks?

one quarter shares go to the Jews ... one quarter shares to the Catholics ... one quarter shares to the Muslims and the last quarter to the Protestants.

That way all will be fair when it pertains to ownership of the one-god dogma.

All the other religions can figure out how they plan to divide their profits ... er ... uh ... I mean prophets.

:)

Oh ... by the way ... truth is another story yet to come.

Catholics completely ignore the teaching of tithing...

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

But tithing was a Jewish law, and Jesus Christ was the 'end' of the law.

Paul and Jan Crouch have side-by-side mansions because they can't live together anymore ... from what I understand.

I read where at one time in history both words black and white simply meant "void of color," or "without color."
The word black was vilified by believers that darkness meant evil and light meant holiness.
It was another plan created out of ignorance and arrogance.
Stanley says that in every Nation on our Pale Blue Dot, Black still means evil, and white means holiness.

Who do you think that Blacks are the 'most' racist people on the planet!!!!!!!!!!followed by the Jews and Native Indians of course.

Why, if Whites were Not in control of the laws of the land...which includes the maintenance and issue of weapons....Blacks would stand at the foot of your bed and blow your God damned head off.

One woman shared an important private issue with me years ago that still sticks in my mind.
She was very shy about sex in her marriage, and although she loved her husband was totally frigid.
However, one night she went for it. She fondled him and let him know that she wanted him sexually - big time.
I could tell by how they looked at each other that there were "no holds barred" between them and that he was one happy man.
Good food might be the way to a man's stomach, but good sex will be the way to his self-esteem that he is welcome, appealing and well-worth the time it takes to show him he is "the man."
Stanley says that your wording could be 'interpreted' by many that 'you were there' as you say that 'you could tell by how they looked at each other'.

By the way, you did Not mention if she was 'one happy woman'!!!

Did she remain frigid????....Was this woman really you???

God defines marriage and a whole lot of other requirments for the Christian life. He founded His Church for the purpose of making these definitions known to us. But that gets us into the authority thing which I really have no interest in getting in to with you.
Yes, marriage is a sacrament. It requires full knowledge, understanding and consent by both parties. An "oath" taken by someone who doesn't understand the oath or even someone who has their "fingers crossed" (for lack of a better ananolgy), is what may make the ceremony invalid.
Or in the case of my brothers wedding (Evangelical and Jehovah Witness) he was drunk and his groomsmen were stumbling around too. The Judge thought it was funny.
It was a 'hook up' between two people. Not a Holy Sacrament. The Catholic Church won't recognize that as a valid marriage. Its no wonder the Protestant world is confused when it comes to same sex marriage.
I remember my wedding. The Church said, if they detect any alcohol prior to the Wedding Mass, they'll cancel it.

And again.....
MYTH NUMBER FOUR:
If an Annulment is Granted the Children will be Illegitimate
The truth is that an ecclesiastical annulment is concerned only with the spouses, and not the children. An annulment has no effect at all on the legitimacy of children, or other arrangements regarding children , such as custody or support. These are all concerns of the civil law, and an ecclesiastical annulment has
absolutely no effects under civil law. It is a myth
that granting an annulment makes the children
illegitimate.
~~~

Annulment is an ecclesiastical name that the Roman Catholic religious system calls divorce.

An annulment like a divorce creates an situation like and earthquake that sends it's devastating faults out across the region, AND CAUSES PAIN AND DEVISTATION TO EVERY ONE IT TOUCHES.

The Roman Catholic religious system in its arrogance ....again has attempted to reverse the stated will of God...

The Bible says

Mal 2:14 Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.

Mal 2:15 And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.

Mal 2:16 ===> For the LORD, THE GOD OF ISTAEL, SAITH THAT HE HATETH PUTTING AWAY: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.

Mal 2:17 Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?

JESUS SAID

Mat_5:31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

Mat_5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Mat_19:3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

Mat_19:7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?

Mat_19:8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

Mat_19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
