The Vatican Council sees Christian parents as exercising a real form of baptismal priesthood towards their children. Indeed, once the body is depersonalized, it no longer seems credible—unless one supposes that God himself is a mere object and instrument—that a bodily human individual could be divine, that “the Word became flesh and lived among us” (Jn 1.14), and that one should live in the hope of seeing and touching “what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands” (1 Jn 1.1). 206 Thus, when sexual immorality becomes an accepted part of a Christian’s life, it subverts the incarnationalism and sacramentalism at the heart of Catholic faith.

Many of the signs which point to possible invalidity do not establish it as a fact, for they also could manifest one or both spouses’ unreadiness to fulfill their responsibilities in a valid marriage. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express" [Romans 8:26].

She was not thinking about how to please and honor God or her husband. The various roles and responsibilities are discussed: The Husband, Wife, Parents, and Children. No doubt, angry words have been exchanged; perhaps they have nagged and threatened each other. If a Catholic attempts marriage without a Catholic ceremony and without obtaining the bishop’s authorization, the couple very probably are not married. 295 If a couple agreed before marriage that one of them would be sterilized or that they would always practice contraception so as never to have children, their relationship is not a valid marriage. 296 If either partner was involved in a previous relationship which had any semblance of marriage, and the problem of that prior relationship was not cleared up before attempting a Catholic marriage, that partner probably was not free to marry. 297 If a couple have tried but failed to consummate their marriage, it may be null; if not, it possibly is dissoluble. 298 If either or both partners were reluctant to marry but were forced to do so because of some pressure—for example, by parents concerned about the woman’s pregnancy, or by one party’s desperate need to emigrate or obtain a place to live—the consent required for marriage might have been lacking. 299 If after marriage either partner learns of some pre-existing circumstance which would have deterred him or her from consenting had it been known at that time, the consent may not have been sufficiently informed to make a marital commitment, particularly if the matter was an important one bearing on the marriage itself, such as the other party’s attitudes about matters of religion or about marriage and its responsibilities. 300 Moreover, in general, if either party deserts or judges it justifiable to separate, the possibility should be considered that the trouble is caused by a factor which renders the putative marriage invalid.

Moreover, they accepted it as part of the faith, for it was taken to be implicit in the sixth and ninth commandments and to be illustrated by various other texts of sacred Scripture. It is obvious how adultery, both for the married and for any unmarried person involved in it, violates the same good.
