Question: What does the Catholic Church teach about divorce?

The Catholic Church does not recognise divorce as it goes against the teachings of Christ - No human being must separate, then, what God has joined together. Divorce is the breaking of the sacrament and the vows made between the couple and God. The nature of marriage states that it must be life-long.

Does the Catholic Church recognize divorce?

Catholics who receive a civil divorce are not excommunicated, and the church recognises that the divorce procedure is necessary to settle civil matters, including custody of children. But divorced Catholics are not allowed to remarry until their earlier marriage has been nullified.
