EWTN.com - annulment question: "annulment question
Question from Anonymous on 10/1/2008:
If someone was a alcoholic when they got married and the other party knew they were a drinker but didn't know they would not be able to be there in the true sense as a spouse and parent because of their drinking is there reason for annulment in such cases?
Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 10/2/2008:
Perhaps. Severe alcoholism may prevent a person from being capable of assuming essential marital obligations."
