In fact, Jim, the official stand of the RCC is that no human power can dissolve the bond which God has joined. So the only "marriages" that the Church grants annulments for are those that had some major flaw upon which the marriage was based, and therefore invalidated the sacrament for its intrinsic lack of merit. Officially, the Church stands against sacramental divorce, but not sacremental annulment. It really does make sense, and it is not taken lightly by the Church which has established tribunals all over the world in these times to assist the faithful in obtaining salvation in spite of our human faults which we have manifested in disordered marriages.
