I've posteda few threads here. My H and I are now separated due to many issues (abuse, neglect, lack of communication, sexless marriage).
A few relatives have told me that my marriage may never been valid because my H never wanted any children. From the beginning he wanted me to take the pill (I refused), but had to accept other birth control methods to satisfy him. There was also emotional, verbal and occasional physical abuse from my H that continued on and off throughout all our years together. He stopped having relations with me years and years ago and lived quite happily that way although I was very unhappy.
Some devout relatives have told me that my marriage was probably never valid owing to H entering the marriage with a mindset against children. This was never discussed with me or I would not have married him.
If so what does this mean?
Does it mean I'm not actually married in the eyes of the Church?
