My fiance and I have been patiently waiting for my final annulment decree to come in the mail. I did already get the first letter saying it was found invalid and that within the next 6-8 weeks I would get my final decree. We have been abstaining the best we can. We have had some slip ups in the last 3 years, but go right to confession and resume saying the rosary. It has abeen a few months now with no sexual acts at all. I was wondering what the Catholic religion felt about other means of being intamite?? Without being too desriptive, I am talkign pretty much anything but intercourse. Is that allowed in our faith or is that also a mortal sin? Sense it has been found invalid and we are approaching our marriage with in the church, is the other acts exceptable now?Or if we were to do these acts, would they need confession too??
Thanks in advance!
