Q. 1. What are some of the ground permitted to obtain an Church Annulment to one's marriage?

A. 1. Based on a document published by the spokesperson of the Bishops of France in July 1992, the following are legitimate reasons for the recognition of the invalidity of a marriage:

- absence of internal freedom for the husband or wife,

- force or grave fear imposed from without (Canon 1103),

- lack of intention to get engaged until death,

- exclusion of fidelity or of procreation,

- severe emotional immaturity,

- major impossibility to live in marriage,

- absence of judment,

- psychological and physical incapacity to assume the essential obligation of marriage, and

- deceit or misrepresentation of the person.

Other grounds are:

- existence of a previous marriage bond, and

- certain family ties of consanguinity (both parties from the same ancestor).

For more information regarding the invalidity of a Sacramental marriage, please consult a Catholic priest.
