Default Re: How might the nullity process be improved?

Maybe this is why all too many people who find themselves up to their eyeballs in a situation that makes their life a living hell, simply turn their backs and head for the Pentecostal side of the tracks?

In Canon 1153 the Church allows for civil divorce without remarriage in cases where one of the spouses has made the common life intolerable. Any sort of abuse would fit that criteria.

They remain married in the eyes of the Church, but they are no longer legally bound and they can protect their finances and their other assets.

I think the issue becomes complicated when one or both parties decide that the have a fundamental right to be married and having sex, and that therefore the Church is being unreasonable for requiring a Declaration of Nullity before allowing them to attempt marriage again.
According to Quentin Tarentino, (Kill Bill Volume 2) Clark Kent is Superman's opinion of the human race. It occurs to me that, using the same logic, Jesus of Nazareth is God's.
