Publishers Description With over 50 percent of all marriages in the U.S. ending in divorce, there is enormous hurt and pain, and confusion and misperceptions about the Catholic church's teaching on marriage, divorce and declarations of nullity (annulment). To clarify church teaching on these subjects, a current tribunal director and canon lawyer has written a question and answer guide for Catholics who are marrying people who have been divorced or are unbaptized in the Christian faith, for Catholics who are divorced and seek to remarry, and for all those who minister to them. In an easy-to-read format of questions and answers, with questions taken from real people's experiences, Vondenberger provides a clear and helpful handbook, based on her decades of experience working in the tribunal of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and from her consultative role with a Web site that provides information and opportunities for reconciliation and healing of marriage and divorce issues. An appendix will include current canon law on these topics, making the book a quick reference for pastoral ministers, libraries, marriage counselors, etc.

Catholics, Marriage & Divorce: Real People, Real Questions Jul 17, 2006
Good practical up-to-date information contained within this book. Real life examples presented in a clear and organized fashion. The reason I purchased this book was to find answers to the myriad of questions I had. Within one single hour-long read I was able to have all of my questions answered!
Helpful resource for those with questions Feb 15, 2005
This helpful resource, which carries both the nihil obstat and imprimatur, is a great resource for anyone with questions on marriage, divorce and annulment issues within the Catholic church. Gleaned from the forums of a large web site, the topics posed in this question and answer format book are both relevant and common. Additionally, the book covers pre-marriage topics as well. The responses are offered in a concise and non-judgemental fashion, making the book both enjoyable to read and a good resource for those whose paths may have led them away from the Church.
A people driven Q&A on annulments... Dec 8, 2004
Over the years, I have sometimes disagreed with the author when it comes to canon law. But not over anything she has written or edited in this book. Of the numerous annulment question and answer books out there, Sister Victoria's is my favorite.
This book is readable, informative, interesting and completely faithful to Church teaching. What makes this book unique is that Sister answers real questions asked by real people either going through the annulment process or those thinking of doing so. Additionally, Sister isn't scared to branch out and answer some good questions about what makes for stronger marriages and what weakens marriage. She also adds a personal touch by sharing how God worked His grace is the marriage of her parents.
In the end, it makes for a fun book, insofar as something as painful as an annulment or a broken marriage can be fun. My only complaint is that Sister Victoria doesn't spend more time marketting the book, since this hidden gem is truly among the best Q&A books on annulments.
