Whaddya want to know?

Were you married in the Catholic Church?
How long were you married?
Did you have children together?
Were you the one who initiated the separation and divorce?
Were you the one who initiated the annulment process?
How long did it take?
Were you satisfied with how you were treated?
Was it done in the U.S.A.?

How's that for a beginning?

I'm in Canada, but maybe my experience is helpful. Our ratio of annulments is probably similar to the US, but because we have less population in raw #'s we would be less.

Yes, we were married in the Church, although that was not our original plan.
We were married 9 months.
No children.
I did not initiate the divorce, although I did not contest it.
I was the one who initiated the annulment. I was just getting my feet wet in the Church again after being away for many years, but somehow intuitively knew I had to do it.
The divorce took 22 months. The annulment took about 20 months.
I cannot say enough positive things about the process, even if it had resulted in no annulment being granted. I learned a lot about myself, the Church, and what marriage actually is from it (stuff I wished I knew BEFORE getting married).

I have since remarried, and I credit the process with helping me and my husband understand what we have undertaken. It provided a tremendous amount of healing for me, and ultimately laid the groundwork for me to become a faithful, practicing, traditionalish/conservative Catholic.
