The Process of Dispensation in The Catholic Church. Non-consummated Marriage

Term Paper (Advanced seminar) 2010 18 Pages

Theology - Practical Theology

Summary

Canon 1141 states that marriage which is ratified and consummated cannot be dissolved by any human power or by any cause other than death. However, Canon 1142 gives an exception that a (ratified but) non-consummated marriage between baptized persons or between a baptized party and anon-baptized party can be dissolved by the Roman Pontiff for a just reason, at the request of both parties or of either party, even if the other is unwilling. The author will explain briefly the meaning of non-consummation and give some historical instances of the dispensation of the marital bond of non-consummated marriage. He will then deal with the canonical process of dispensation of non-consummated marriage with some sample cases of non-consummated marriages which were dispensed in record time.
