This is spun off from the "disciplines" thread.

Sacramental marriage is indissoluble.

Marriage tribunals determine whether the parties who entered into the marriage were able to make a mature sacramental commitment, or whether there were impediments to the marriage.

And, as in every other matter of law, these factors can be interpreted loosely or strictly.

Some people may think there are currently too many annulments. Some may think there are too few.

If the guidelines (and the interpretation of those guidelines) for annulment are loosened or tightened, this could have a significant effect (which some people might find positive and others negative.)

Well... it really doesn't surprise me, nor do I think it scandalous, that there are many annulments in this country... We have a very poor culture that doesn't appreciate what marriage actually is... I have no doubt that this is a reason why there are so many annulments... If you want to see annulments reduced, we need to work to overturn a lot of the bad practices and teachings that have creeped into our western culture... Not the least of which are artificial birth control and pornography...

Canon law presumes that the marriage is valid. That presumption may be rebutted by proof of a an impediment, incapacity, or insincerity at the time of the marriage ceremony.

How many are there? Is there an actual count?
