Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Resource  May 22, 2008
After the wife of my youth left me I purchased this book to better understand the process I would be going through. I was so impressed with it that I bought additional copies for my witnesses and even the wife of my youth so that they would understand it as well. Ed Peters has managed to distill into simple questions and answers all the important information on this oft-misunderstood process.

In addition to explaining the basic process this book also dispels most common misunderstandings regarding annulments. Annulments are NOT "Catholic divorce" as many mistakenly claim. This book will help you understand and correct such errors and explain why there is a fundamental and essential difference between divorce and the investigation into the validity of a marriage that the Catholic Church performs. Divorce is a grave matter and the acceptance of it by the ecclesial communities of our separated brethren in clear contradiction to our Lord's express commands is a great scandal. This book will better equip you to explain the truth.

This book will also help to assuage concerns over alleged "abuses" of the process, especially here in the USA. After reading this book I no longer wonder if there might be something wrong in the process because of the high number of marriages found to be invalid here in America; instead I now wonder what is wrong with our culture that produces so many invalid marriages.

Again, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Buy it.
 
judgemental and discouraging  Jan 28, 2008
Looking for information and reassurance? - then
I would discourage you from getting this book.
There were several quite harsh and judgmental passages
- contributing to the feeling that this process is
like an inquisition. Witnesses? I don't get it. Who
has "witnesses" to a painful misbegotten past - a
personal past, 10,20,30 years ago? "Forms and inquiries".
This book only helps reinforce the stereotype that men
who were never married can have no compassion.

 
Straight Answers to Tough Questions  Mar 25, 2007
A comprehensive and understandable treatment of a very complex subject
 
Nothing new  Feb 19, 2007
If you want a quick one stop source for most answers you need then this might be the book for you. It is an easy read and well organized but no new information than what I found elsewhere on the internet.

And, as the title suggests, this book offers little 'advice' on how to speed the process, what keys pieces of information the Church may be looking for to expedite the review or advice to those who may have a legitimate case but be light on the required supporting information.

I've found more answers researching internet blogs and speaking directly with my church.
 
Annulment erases what a civil divorce cannot and never can  Sep 25, 2006
An act of annulment is a spiritual rite of making null and void a transaction - in this case of marriage. It is not a divorce which is a legal declaration that obligations between two parties has ceased. Annulment is on par with marriage in the sense that it dissolves the vow and pledges spoken to create the marital covenant. This is a major distinction. Once a bride and bridegroom take vows to each other in front of a priest in a church in front of all their friends and families .... It is not a promise, a contract, or an agreement, it is a sacred divine vow, a permanent spiritual binding union of two souls. A fusion of two people into one. Annulment is a spiritual erasure of that vow. So non-Catholics who must go through the process to marry a Catholic will learn how to understand this process. It is a second chance to get it right once and for all.
