The couple separated in 1982 at a time when Thorne was battling a deep depression and contemplating suicide.

Who wouldn't married to LURCH! Of course Tahreeza just boozes it up to blur her vision of him! LOL

Does his annulment make his kids bastards like him?

That was the expression Thorne used when rich boy got the annullment. THK insisted on the annullment as part of her Catholic upbringing and to keep John boy's prenup. Thorne was exceptionally disturbed that Kerry had deligitimized their wedding and basically made bastards out of his children.

Why?
That was a legitimate question.
Ted Kennedy and Robert Kennedy did the same thing - annulled the marriage after children already arrived.
It doesn't square.

That's nice. Too bad we've grown out of the feudal era, and annullment no longer has any status effect on the children. She, as well as some others here, need to rejoin reality.

The first wife is pretty, and looks very sensitive. Probably needed more attention than she was getting...

The interesting thing to me is that she blames her lonliness and anger and depression on the political life. I suspect living with JFK, unbearable narcissist that he is, sucked the life and the air out of her world.

What always disturbs me is that he left her when she was so ill and left the children. And now as the world has turned, she has just finished a course of chemo while her daughters, abandoned by their father, are at his side helping him in his ambition to hear "hail to the Chief".

With his rich wife, his political life, his ambtion, there are his daughters. And the first wife is at home with cancer. I dont know about anyone else, but I would be at my motheers side.

Right you are, cajungirl. The mother's side would be the place to be. Maybe they also are there. I would hope so. Or maybe they inherited his "self-serving" gene.

Perhaps he was actually putting Ms. Thorne first when he left her is the midst of depression. Seeing John Kerry leave the scene for good would lift anyone's spirits.

The fact that she's now a recluse who apparently fell to pieces whilst married to him and fought the "disappearing" of her marriage to him serves as pretty good evidence of his "character". [gaaah!...saying that made me nauseous]

I read somewhere that she quietly "supports" his bid for president so I really doubt she'll be writing an expose' any time soon.

All of America knows of her existence and the anullment issue will only weigh on the minds of those who hold such things as marriage sacred.

It may be that she -fears- to speak of him publicly.
Based on what I've seen of him, he strikes me as a vicious, violent, potentially dangerous person.

Perhaps he "made her a deal" for her silence.

Chilling thought, isn't it?

I agree. Even as an example of how despicable Kerry is, this one should be left alone. She has suffered enough. Of course, if it were a Republican X-wife cancer victim, she would be "fair game" to the dimos.

I happen to know someone who's father pulled the same stinking trick.
He told me what happened, and said their father had just made bastards of them all.
Being a former Catholic I know a little about the bizarre practice.
BTW their mother wasn't at fault at all, according to the kids.
Just one of the dozens of reasons I have no respect for the RCC.

"Does his annulment make his kids bastards like him?"

If you go by the Catholic church it would make them ultimate. They "annulled" the marriage.

"The couple’s divorce was final in 1988 but was not annulled by the Roman Catholic Church until 1997 – two years after Kerry married Teresa Simões-Ferreira Heinz, a former United Nations translator and widow of Pennsylvania Sen. H. John Heinz III, a Republican.

Ole John moved up the wealth ladder with Terrraza.

"Kerry married the former Julia Thorne, a Philadelphia heiress, in 1970 in Bay Shore, N.Y. "

I hear she was worth a measly 300 million; not billions like the lonely widow, Terrraza HEINZ.

THE SENATE'S NEW ROMEO?
Published on February 22, 1989
Author(s): John Robinson Globe Staff

WASHINGTON -- His divorce has been final for only six months, but already Sen. John Kerry has acquired a first-class rake's reputation in the rarefied world of rich, handsome, young bachelor senators.

To hear the gossips tell it, the tall, dark-haired former Navy officer with the surgically improved chin has been cutting a swath through the ranks of America's most available young women, inspiring both admiration and envy among the capital's preening young singles.

Yes,

"That was a legitimate question."

Why someone would be offended is ridiculous. An "annulled marriage" means the marriage is NOT legitimate.

See, that's the problem.
There's lots of Catholics who are not Democrats.
The annulment process can take 2 years or more for most people.
No matter how hard/easy/right/wrong it is to get an annulment, it has no bearing on the legitimacy of the children, and that is the fact. The children are irrelevant to the discussion. In fact, the annulment is irrelevant. It was his ex that sought the divorce in the first place.
If you want to call Kerry a bastard, just call him a bastard.

I don' think your comments are out of line at all. I am sick of the corrupt Catholic church aiding and abetting liberal New England politicians. How the hell do you get a 27 year old wedding annulled. And if so, are not his daughter's born out of wedlock, since the marraige never existed?

I know the feeling! The Catholic church has been very clear that an anullment has no effect on the standing of the children. As for those "write a check" anullments we hear about... I know someone who always said, "do those people really think they are going to fool God?" It is unfortunate, however, that those sham anullments cause people to look askance at every anullment....

If you search using a "anullment" "children," etc., you will get a lot of returns that answer this question. For example, one states:

The parents, now divorced, presumably once obtained a civil license and entered upon a legal marriage. Children from that union are, therefore, their legitimate offspring. Legitimate means “legal.” The civil divorce and the Church annulment do not alter this situation. Nor do they change the parents’ responsibility toward the children. In fact, during annulment procedures the Church reminds petitioners of their moral obligation to provide for the proper upbringing of their children. Nevertheless, persons pondering the Catholic annulment process do often express this concern about the legitimacy of the children after that procedure. It’s a persistent rumor.

I certainly do agree with you, though, that the annulment of a 27 year marriage, with children, is pretty fishy... like many other political annulments. Nonetheless, I have yet to see a Catholic authority stating that the children are illegitimate after an annulment. I think whether Kerry, Kennedy, et. al., should have gotten an annulment is another issue entirely and I suspect most posters on these threads would agree on that point.

Problem is the Catholic church backing the process.
You can no more annul part of a family than you can be a little bit pregnant.
It's a farce to squeeze cash.

"I suggest you be really careful about saying stuff like that."

Although Trick may have been a little, uh, crude in the way he stated it, I do wonder about the status of the girls. An 'annulment' means the marriage never existed. So what would the status of the two girls be as far as the RC is concerned? I don't know.

Almost sounds to me like there's no sense is bothering with a 'church annulment' at all. I thought these things were almost impossible to get. Doesn't seem like they are all that difficult.

Sadly, the process is very long and drawn out for most people and requires quite a bit of paperwork. If one perserveres and does the work, I think the chances of success are quite good... but many people give up, particularly people who are intimidated by the paperwork and process. And in my experience, the "advocate" (parish priest who is supposed to assist) often does not offer much help.
