Speaking of Elusive, I tried to post there and couldn’t. I have seen plenty of good men go through the “annulment process” and it is as easy as he describes for the woman to get it, despite what the naysayers on his post say.
All a woman has to say is “she didn’t understand the nature of the agreement and therefore couldn’t consent” and bingo she’s off the hook. I doubt anyone really understands that agreement before the enter it and if men did, or could see the future where it would take them personally, I suspect the marriage rate would fall off the cliff.
I read the papers one guy got when he tried to contest the annulment and the questions they asked him were geared to “when he knew something was wrong in the relationship” the answer (the annulment is going to happen) was in the questions.
The problem is insurmountable for the churches, catholic and protestant, they embraced feminism, social justice and feel goodness because they decided women were their primary constituents and now they’re like the beta husband, afraid if they stand up to them the women will leave and they’ll have nothing and lost their moral authority.
