So essentially, I am wondering just that: can a person marry his/her confirmation sponsor? In the old Code of Canon Law, it said that persons involved in the sponsor-confirmant relationship had formed a spiritual bond which acted as a minor impediment to marriage. I think St. Thomas Aquinas gives a similar argument. The new Code, however, has no such clause. As far as I am aware, it completely ignores the subject. I have also heard the augment that, insofar as this discipline is not imposed, it does not exist. In other words, since it is not addressed, it is no longer an issue and a confirmant could potentially marry his/her sponsor.
I ask principally on account of my own situation. I sponsored a girl not much younger than myself whom I have become quite good friends with and am wondering if I am permitted to pursue a relationship with her.
