Im not sure anymore about annullments, my diocese called and said they cannot process it, despite having witnesses write in, because I havent paid any money toward it. Said I cannot, trying to support myself and my child alone. Beginning to think its all about the money.
It is definitely not 'all about the money'. It goes back to the sermon on the mount, Matthew 5, 31:32, Jesus says "But I say to you, whoever divorces his wife (unless the marriage is unlawful) causes her to commit adultery and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery". The issue is that while the Church is Holy and trustworthy and perfect, She is administered by imperfect people. This is where our responsibilty to be humble and submit ourselves to the religious authorities placed above us becomes difficult. I guess I am lucky because our diocese offers waivers of the fee to needy people and works to help us, without watering down the process. Thank you Jesus. But, I'd go back to your parish priest, see what he thinks. They should be able to do something. As I said to the other lady, I will pray for your annulment and you please pray for mine.
