Hi, guys —

My husband and I are considering joining the church locally. I was married for many years to a man who decided in 1999 that he preferred men. We were divorced in 2000.

Since then I have remarried.

  • Is my first husband's proclivity for other men a valid reason to grant an annulment?

Rosie,

Some flaw must be in the consent at the time of the vows and latent homosexuality would probably qualify.

I would talk to a priest and get the process going.

Peace,

Bob Kirby

Fr. Jonathan replied:

Hi, Rosie —

The answer is possibly.

As with any issue it must be proven to exist at the moment of consent.
Suddenly discovering it, long into the marriage, is not grounds.
