And so on this second anniversary of my convalidation, I want to encourage all of you, my brothers and sisters who are cradle Catholics: Fear not!

If you have a troubled marriage, seek help; our God is a gracious, most merciful God, seek Him.

I can never write those words without tearing up—they move me so.

My greatest desire in life is to be in constant eyelash-to-eyelash relationship with God.

If they wanted the church's blessing why wouldn't they just marry in church in the first place?

If there was a reason they were unable to do that isn't it hypocritical of the church to give a blessing afterwards?

First, this is what the Church asks us to do; we are converts from Calvinism so embracing the Church as Christ’s authority on earth was part of our journey, and it was one of the first issues we researched when we studied the doctrines of the faith.

Second, because our marriage will be a sign of contradiction to the culture that has blossomed out of no-fault divorce, the culture that now finds itself in the post-Obergefell mishmash of marriage being whatever anyone wants and only for as long as everyone involved thinks it’s still “working” for them.

This led to a desire to live in ever greater conformity to Christ, and that is what helped me, body and soul, to walk this annulment road.Answer: First, I ought to say that I am not an expert on Canon Law, nor indeed civil law - so any corrections or clarifications a reader might give will be welcome. I presume that you are speaking of the UK where marriages can be contracted according to civil law during a religious ceremony. ) the civil marriage takes place before the equivalent of a JP, usually the day before the religious ceremony.
