I went through an investigation on Saturday. Canonical investigation. It was an investigation conducted to investigate bride and groom to be according to Catholic’s rule.
After a wedding preparation course, here comes the canonical investigation. What was exactly asked in this investigation? It varies. Everyone actually won’t know until the investigation is in process.
But I’ll tell the case with me. The priest asked me how long my relationship with my boyfriend. And actually, asked whether I get married because forced or I was willing to. Where will we live afterward? Marriage means ups and downs shall be share between the couple, whether I ready for that even if I have to suffer? Catholic marriage is unitary and monogamy, one and can’t be separated, so we can’t annul the marriage if we don’t have children. If we have children, how many we want them? And we are as planners only, but God’s will be done. Whether we were related by blood? How is the job? Will we live with parents or in laws?
The priest got confused too because my name and my bf’s name are alike. Hahahha… it was really a coincidence though. And marriage is between man and woman. Am I sure that my partner is a man? Like that.. hahahah the priest was really fun. It was short but the rest will be follow. The rest will be three times announcement in church, delegation to the priest who will bless our marriage later, and maybe some civil matters should be taken care.
