Today I hear a very astonishing news from my friend. She says that a holy matrimony can be cancelled after the wedding happened. Just because the male was impotent. A marriage that was passed and blessed in the church.
As far as I know in a church, a bride and a groom must follow the course of marriage as a prerequisite for marriage in a church. After that a marriage must be announced three times in three weeks just to make sure that there is no obstacle. There is even an appeal if a person is aware of any obstacles supposed to notify the local priest. And my assumption, there is no divorce in a holy matrimony. Just like the promise of marriage, among others, states that ” … to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part”.
In reality, today I hear the different version of it. The bride wants to divorce because the groom was impotent. And the church passed her request. She got a letter that explains she can marry again and her former husband got a letter forbidding him to marry again.
