I mentioned this recently and looking over it my Mother was more correct than I am…
My parents are divorced, my Mom is remarried with one little girl from this new marriage and me and my brother. My dad is in a long time relationship with his girlfriend with no real intention to marry; which is agreed by both of them.
My parents’ marriage had nothing of these
The contract is defective in form if the marriage ceremony is invalid, such as the case of two Catholic persons being married outside of the Catholic Church.
The contract is defective of contract if it was not a marriage that was contracted, such as if there was a defect of intent on either side. This can occur if either party lacked the intent to enter into a lifelong, exclusive union, open to reproduction.
If either party was coerced, they lacked willingness, and therefore lacked intent.
If either party was married to another, they were unable to enter into the contract. Also, certain relationships of blood render the parties unable to enter into contract. Also, parties of the same gender are unable to enter into contract.
Nor were the reasons any of this.
Insanity precluding ability to consent
Not intending, when marrying, to remain faithful to the spouse (simulation of consent)
One partner had been deceived by the other in order to obtain consent, and if the partner had been aware of the truth, would not have consented to marry
Abduction of a person, with the intent to compel them to marry (known as raptus), constitutes an impediment as long as they remain in the kidnapper’s power.
Failure to adhere to requirements of canon law for marriages, such as clandestinity
the couple killed the spouse of one of them in order to be free to marry.
the couple committed adultery.
The couple were under the influence of alchohol
SO WHAT GOD?! Your saying you’ll never release my parent’s from their marriage and see their healthy new relationships as nothing more than adultery, my 4 year old sister nothing but a bastard to you?! :mad:
god learning this never made me hate God more than I do now…I finally see where people come from saying Hell is a gift-If he intends to be so rigid as to not even allow someone to fix their mistake then to Heaven with God I’ll stick to Hell.
