This question came up in a disscussion of my faith with my mother. My biological parents have divorced; it went off with no problems and I have a loving relationship with both. However like I said I was talking about faith and mentioned why didn’t she go to confession with me when I went. Well she said that it was because of my parents divorce and the fact that they’d need an annulment to be forgiven; but the truth is that their seems to be no reason for a annulment according too Canon law. (Neither commited anything that would recieve a annulment during marriage and truth be told I still don’t know exactly why they seperated)
I thought about it and it seems that their was no reason that a normal anulment occurs. The climax was when my mom asked if I thought she and my dad would go to hell for not getting a annulment or confessing it. Another thing is wouldn’t a annulment mean that they would not of wished to have had children together (Me and my brother) which is a lie since they both love us very much?
So now my own faith seems troubled since I feel like if I think one way then my parents lie and claim to never of had a marriage. Or things remain the same and I have the thought that my loving parents are in Hell for not annuling a marriage.
I’m shaken spiritually by this perdicament…
