I have a friend that can not get married in the church for his next marriage cuz the church will not annul his past marriage. The New bride to be is P!ssed.

I have some questions, and I don't mean to hijack the thread:

Is an annulment a religious proceeding or a legal proceeding? And under what circumstances can a marriage be annulled? My uncle who had 2 children (29 and 26 years old) and a 30-year marriage divorced my aunt and then spoke of getting an annulment. Legally they were not husband and wife, so why would he want/need the annulment?

I think it is so that you can get married in the church again.

Rerun is right, it's a Catholic religion thing. When you get married and file your marriage application the state considers it legal binding (Civil Marriage). When you get married in the Catholic church it's a blessing in the eyes of the church.

I was married from Oct 95 - Dec 98. in the eyes of the Church you are still married until one files for an annulment. This basically is a 10 page (interview) history of your life and your relationship with your ex-spouse and families.

This means my ex-wife is seeking to re-marry in a Catholic church and she filed for it recently. What I gather it takes about one year to complete the process.

I'm basically doing it for peace of mind and closure since we split amicably.

I think for infidelity you do NOT have to have your marriage annulled to remarry in a catholic church....and I thought if you had no children you did not have to have an annulment either

I had one of each actually. <_<

My ex wanted to remarry in a Catholic church so I did it for her. Yes Rob, it did take about a year.

The other one is a story for a different time. <_<

i think if you got married you can get an annulment versus a divorce if it's under 6 months and there are no kids involved - or an annulment in a catholic church after 6 mos if there was infidelity. Not positive but I think that's the way it is....

Another question:
If a couple who married in the Catholic church decided to get divorced (the civil law part), could they also file for the annulment at the same time or shortly after so they wouldn't have to do this years after the fact? I would expect if either or both of them were to remarry they would want to marry in the church.
