A friend of mine recently had her marriage convalidated in the church. When talking to her about it, I asked her how the annulment process worked. She had been civilly married for about 6 months when she was 18; married and divorced the same year. She said that she just “didn’t mention it” when she was going through the convalidation process because she was young at the time, the marriage was brief and she had no doubt that it was not a “real” marriage.
So-my question is—since she withheld this information from the church—is her newly convalidated marriage really legitimate? If not, what should she do??:shrug:
