Protestant or Catholic?

ANSWER #3 of 3

There are no divorces in the catholic church. One can ask for an annulment, if there are grounds. It will only be granted for situations like abandonment, or one partner refusing to have children. Of course if you have money, you can get one even if you have many kids. I think Frank Sinatra got a couple of them.

Getting a divorce and remarrying means you are excommunicated from the church. You can murder someone and ask for forgiveness and you have to be granted it. But make the wrong choice about who you will spend the rest of your life with, and you are kicked out.

Just another example of religious hypocrisy...
