Sorry if this has been talked about already, but I need some information on annulments. I’m single but my dad is thinking of joining the Catholic church(why is beyond me because he doesn’t believe in anything they teach!). My question is when does the church give annulments, it seems like an annulments is just a Catholic way of granting a divorce, especially with how prevalent they are in the church today. What does the pope teach on this. My parents were both baptized Protestants when they were married and they had 3 children. But, my dad had an affair and married the woman he had an affair with, now he and his current wife are considering joining the Catholic church, even though my dad doesn’t believe in about 90% of what the church teaches, so why is he going to join???
Could someone just explain annulments to me and looking at the situation of my dad, would he be able to even get an annulment?
God Bless You All!
