Pope Francis Makes Marriage Annulment Process Easier

Pope FrancisPope Francis has drastically changed the way in which Catholics annul their marriages. The process will now be much easier. On Tuesday, the following revisions were:

-Eliminating a second review by a cleric before a marriage can be nullified.

-Giving bishops the ability to fast-track and grant the annulments themselves in certain circumstances. I.E.: when spousal abuse or an extramarital affair has occurred.

-The process should be free, except for a nominal fee for administrative costs, and should be completed within 45 days.

In a few weeks, Pope Francis will make his first visit to the United States.
