RE: Ability to remarry
Question from D.M. on 01-21-2013:
Dear Ms. Arnold,

Should your answer have included the occasion of a spouse obtaining an annulment?

Answer by Catholic Answers on 01-22-2013:
D.M.--

No. We are talking about a case involving the death of one of the spouses in a presumptively sacramental marriage who had been living separate lives through legal divorce. Death ends a sacramental marriage, which frees the surviving spouse to remarry. There is no reason or need to have such a marriage declared null from the beginning through annulment.
