so my parents are in an invalid marriage, my mom was prevfiously married back when she was in china
I have tried to gently persuade her in to seeking a decree of nullity but she just won’t do it
the excuses are “oh I don’t really need one, God knows the truth” or “it’s my personal business, I don’t need to tell anyone, they’ll judge and spread it around” and I think a bit of fear of not being granted one.
I don’t really know what I can say or do now besides pray, they both come to church with me, she does want to be baptized, my dad received communion even though he’s not supposed to but he won’t listen to me on that either.
as horrible as this sounds, it would be better for both their souls if they split up but that won’t happen. it’s hard to just stand by and not be able to do anything.
any thoughts or advice? I’m also afraid that if i push too hard, they’ll just end up getting angry and it’ll never happen
