Examining Annulment Culture in the Catholic Church

There’s a crisis of marriage in modern culture, even within the Catholic Church. Marriage rates are down, while annulment rates went up. So, what’s going on?

In previous individual episodes, John Clark and Fr. Michael Duesterhaus (a procurator/advocate) both gave their insights about annulment and marriage data. Today, they join us for a joint discussion about where we examine annulment culture in the Catholic Church. We also discuss the appeals process and both offer advice for strengthening Catholic marriages.

Listen now to find out more about annulments in the Catholic Church!
