An annulment is a declaration by the Catholic Church that after careful investigation, flaws were discovered in a relationship that prevented it from becoming a marriage as the Church understands marriage. According to Catholic teaching, marriage is a permanent partnership of a man and a woman. Because a marriage lasts “until death do us part,” no one can enter into a second permanent partnership while his or her first spouse is living unless an annulment has been granted.
