Marriages for so long, have always been sacred and considered as a spiritual union but unfortunately, a lot cases and situations that has caused this relationships to fail thus letting marriages go down the drain.

After the historic announcement of Pope Francis that annulment process will be simplified and made available for free, the Catholic Church Leaders feel there will be an upsurge in the number of annulment cases in the country.

This gives the diocese the authority to judge cases of church annulments, having their own courts where each cases will be processed. First, the annulment will typically begin at the diocese wherein the leaders will make the decision whether a marriage can be null and void, then the decision will be forwarded to Appellate Matrimonial Tribunal so they can review it. In any case the proceedings meets disagreements at the Court of Appeals, it will be sent to Rome.

Considering how long each annulment case is processed, church annulment with complete requirements will be processed in less than two months, which is way more faster than civil annulments that drag up to almost six years.

But sorry to burst your bubble, Atty. Lorna Kapunan explains that church annulment differs in civil annulment. With the separation of the church and state, church annulments will not be honored in Civil Law, and will still view these couples as married and is still liable for any legal civil matters unless they have been granted the civil annulment.

Now, with the church annulment, couples can now live with freedom since they do not have to live with their partners anymore. Only that if they haven't been granted their civil annulment, they still have to participate in all legal matters such as their financial responsibilities with their children.

But even though, the marriage in the church was already nullified, one cannot get married again unless he/she is granted the civil annulment.

This process is only beneficial to those who cannot live with their partners due to psychological incapacity. This give both an entitlement to not live together under the same roof.

All of these difficulties will now be reduced since the Catholic church will implement the new set of rules soon.
