Canon Law

Canon Law
Question from Maggie Stirnaman on 6/10/2008:

What is the Church's ruling on living wills?

Back in the 1970s, if a woman's marriage was annuled, did she have to take back her maiden name?

Thank you very much.
Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 6/14/2008:

Questions on living wills are not matters of canon law but civil law related to morality.

There is no canon law provisions regarding the use of maiden names, although I would note that sacraments generally speaking are always recorded with the use of maiden names.
