Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone had any experience of the Petrine Privilege where the baptised person is the one who is petitioning it and the ex-spouse is the unbaptised party?
I read that the unbaptised party must be fully involved and provide 3 witnesses (preferably blood relations) to confirm they were unbaptised. In my case this would cause a lot of tension in the ex-spouses life (who is remarried) and their family would not be willing to do this. The marriage ended due to these tensions, created by disparity of cult.
Has this happened to anyone? Does anyone know if there is any flexibility with how this is handled? Or what the level of involvement would be - is it just paperwork, or would they need to be deposed as well? Would a document stating the ex-party was a member of a different religion be enough, for example?
Am feeling very despondent and alone with this and don’t know what to do. Any input would be helpful.
