**(an argument for an annulment **
You are thinking as man thinks, not as God thinks.
Hmmm...my question was "How does a Catholic answer this?" Your responses wouldn't convince even another Catholic. Again, what is the answer to that question - if you are able to answer it?
I couldn't care less what Luther or other Protestants had to say. I did not ask the question to argue about the traditions of the Church, but to get an answer. If you are not able to, maybe someone else could attempt an answer, or is it just "unwise" to give an answer to someone who is seeking to know what other Christians think?
