Catholic church divorce dating
Catholic Answers Forums will be transitioning to a redesigned website starting in September.If you've been active on the forums within the last year your account will be migrated to the new site.But then again, to engage in sexually intimate behavior with someone who isn't presumed to be married would be fornication. But does "dating" someone who is presumed to be married constitute adultery? It's a sin against the spouse who is being deceived. I don't know if it's technically sinful, but I do know that it's disrespectful of the process, and it could be setting two people up for enormous disappointment if the tribunal doesn't grant the annulment.The situation changes slightly when a couple is publicly separated and legally divorced. I think engaging in dating-type romantic affection — kissing, "making out", whatever you want to call it — is probably inappropriate for the unannulled as well. You can control your thoughts, so just as you shouldn't be fantasizing sexually (about anybody you aren't married to, really), you probably shouldn't be fantasizing about the big wonderful wedding you're going to have once that pesky annulment is out of the way. Some applicants, over the course of the process, can see that in their individual case the annulment is extremely likely to be granted.And please know that we'll do our best to assist you during this transition.

And, as fascinated as you may be with questions surrounding who gets an annulment and why, there is one big question most of you want to hear more about: dating and annulments. Is it okay to date someone who doesn't have an annulment? Do you have to wait until the annulment is granted? Respecting the Church and respecting the process means respecting that fact. The murky part comes in when we start to talk about "dating." Several of you wrote to ask me if it's a sin to "date" someone who doesn't have an annulment.
