According to Catholic understanding, the marriage is one of the seven sacraments. In other words: refers to as a special character not only on the beyond reality of God, but in it the reality of God is here on Earth expressed. Specifically the love of God to the people or the relationship of Christ to the Church is reflected in the love of the conjugal partnership. Because the Covenant of God with the people is irrevocable, even the marriage is considered to be indissoluble. But what has joined God, that man should not separate”it is said in the Gospels. This indissolubility of marriage is today legally regulated in paragraphs (canons) of the Catholic code of Canon law (in the 1983 Codex iuris canonici). You must not even be theologian to understand the importance of an absolutely valid (marriage) agreement. “So for example the philosopher Immanuel Kant through his categorical imperative and the designs is in perpetual peace” attention to the problems of subject promise: when not everyone fully really maintain its contracts intends sense of absurdity of contracts and stands on the possibility of the promise.

The reform opponents see therefore in any easing threatens the value of marriage. Pastoral is a low prior to find, but in clearly defined areas but also with them. On the other hand, first of all, reformers take the failure of people and offered merciful dealing with them in the eyes, without wanting to put the value of the marriage in question. Also they can rely on the Bible and the practice of the Church. So the Church itself for this reason in the course of history has formulated always exceptions and special arrangements, the remarriage speaks today hardly anyone to allow the original prohibition of divorce (!). The Western Church has been especially so-called marriage invalidity in the views. Here is if the first marriage may not even came and the marriage contract as null and void can be explained checked on the basis of contract law considerations.
