I am glad that he understands the difficulty of such decisions.

I'll give him somewhat of a pass on abortion, what with the inherent misogynistic nature of the church and the Papacy, but the divorce stuff? Um PB... so if hubby is beating on his wife, too bad so sad? If they are both unhappy, too bad, so sad? If they flat out have come to hate each other, too bad, so sad?

As far as I understand, the RCC will grant annulments for situations such as domestic violence. I don't think they make exceptions for marital happiness, though. It's important to remember that even the most devout Catholics can legally obtain a divorce, but they'll just have to deal with their church in the aftermath.

The rules for annulment aren't that stringent. For the most part, if a couple is willing to pay the fees that go along with the request, an annulment is really not that hard to get. Now instead of selling plenary indulgences the Church sells annulments.

Wha?


I know a few religious divorcees who would like to know why God didn't guarantee their conjugal peace!
