“While carefully protecting Jesus’ teaching of the sacredness of marriage, the Church also is obliged to provide justice for anyone whose marriage has failed when it can be shown with moral certainty that the marriage lacked from its onset some essential element for a true sacramental bond.”      – Rev. Jeffrey Keefe, O.F.M. Conv.

The Church derives her beliefs about marriage from Sacred Scripture. We believe that marriage is “a covenant by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole life which is ordered by its nature to the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring …”  (Canon 1055).  A declaration of nullity (annulment) is not a dissolution of marriage.  Rather, it is a judicial pronouncement that a valid marriage had not been brought about on the wedding day, as the community of the faithful had presumed.
