Summary Catholicism teaches that marriage is for life, forbidding divorced Catholics to remarry. Annulment is the only way around this prohibition, but until recently annulments were extremely rare. Since Vatican II, however, there has been an astonishing increase in the number of annulments in the USA. This book offers a detailed study of annulment "American-style", exploring how and why the American system became geared to the mass-production of annulments.
