So here's just a general question that popped into my mind.
According to my old Catholic priest, annulment occurs when a couple did not have the sacrificial requirements at the time of marriage to partake of the sacrament validly. Thus, the Church can rule that the sacrament was not effective, and the "marriage" never actually took place.
I understand that part, but then what about all the things that happened during the marriage? For example, if the couple was not actualy married, wouldn't they be guilty of fornication or adultery by having extra-marital sex (as that's the only thing we can call it if they were never married) ?
Just a quick question
