How I wish the canon law was more lenient towards non catholics seeking annulment.
DarkLight, there are 3 criteria’s that needs to be full filled for Pauline Privilege.
There are a number of criteria, all of which must be present, for this privilege to apply.
Firstly, the Pauline Privilege is only relevant if one of the spouses becomes a Christian and the other does not. In other words, if both spouses are baptized after their marriage, and they then want to separate and remarry, they cannot do so under canon 1143.
Secondly, the privilege can be applied if the unbaptized spouse is either unwilling to continue living with the newly baptized spouse, or if the unbaptized spouse is not willing to do so without “offense to the Creator.” In other words, if the unbaptized spouse is so antagonistic toward the Christian faith of the newly baptized husband or wife that they cannot live together in peace, this constitutes “departing” for the purposes of canon 1143.
(Note that the Pauline Privilege cannot be used if it is the baptized spouse who “departs.” So long as the unbaptized spouse is willing to remain in the marriage, and is not hostile to the Christian faith of the other spouse, the marriage cannot be dissolved other than by death, as per canon 1141.)
Thirdly, the newly baptized spouse must want to enter into a new marriage. Unless and until this happens, he/she remains married to the unbaptized spouse.

With that being said, as per my understanding she totally fullfills the 1st and 3rd criteria, however, i am a little unsure about the 2nd criteria though, it was only after her divorce when she started to follow christianity and turned a protestant(how favourable will the 2nd criteria be in her case), Anyone, any feedback would be much appreciated. Thank you.
