do I need second annulment?

Aug 2nd 2012 new

I have an annulment from my first husband, to whom I was married 18 years. Shortly after our divorce, then annulment, I met and a couple of years later married, someone in a ceremony performed by a Baptist minister at a friend's home. During the time we were married, and unknown to me until my daughters' confronted me with what they found out, my second husband had/was having at least 3 extra-marital affairs. AFter 4 years of marriage we were divorced. If I should become serious after someone again, because of this second marriage of mine being performed in a friend's home (even if it was by a Baptist minister), would I need to get an annulment?

Hi Leslie,, I think you still need to file an annullment.. May I ask, your ex was a Baptist?

Are you using your ex last name?

To my knowledge, you will still need an annulment. If your ex was Baptist, his baptism (if he had one) may not be considered valid. It may just the short form. You might check with Jerry. He understands the ideosyncracies better than I do. At the very least, he explains them better! heart

No, my ex - to make a long story short - was baptized (so he said) Catholic, but never practiced. But during our 4 year marriage, I found just about everything he told me was lies. So I do not really know the truth about him.

Yes, I never changed back to my maiden name - not for any particular reason.

No, as I explained in another post, I think he was baptized Catholic....but like most of what he said during our 4 years of marriage, this could have been a lie.

Who is Jerry?

so sorry this happened to you.


yes, you should file for an annulment. given his conduct and frame of mind and your vulnerability at the time you met/married him,. i'd say it seems likely to be granted.

Leslie your best contact your parish priest. He can give the best direction as to what is needed.

Leslie,
Contact your diocesan marriage tribunal. They will give you accurate information and the steps you need to take. Unfortunately, not all parish Priests have been trained in the annulment process and give wrong information.

Prayers that all goes well for you.

Sounds like Leslie might just need a Lack of Canonical Form annulment.. I agree that the best thing for her to do is contact her Tribunal.


@Leslie.. Jerry is the 'other' Forum Moderator.. He knows a lot about Canon Law. He tries not to post in here much because he is 'GASP' a Never Married..

Thank you to all for all your comments. I appreciate the help. I will contact my Tribunal.

Leslie
