IMPEDIMENTS TO MARRIAGE
BASIC R.C. BELIEF
Diriment impediments are those that render a marriage null and void. They
are: solemn vow of chastity, close blood relationship, some adoptions,
spiritual relationship (godparent or baptizer), bigamy, extreme youth,
impotence or marriage by violence.
These differ from hindering impediments, which make a marriage lawful
but invalid, i.e., simple vows of virginity, mixed religion or relationship
POST VATICAN II
The laws concerning impediments are constantly under review and subject to
change; their application also varies from place to place.
