Sorry to repeat myself, but what are your thoughts on a couple that married without form having their marriage blessed without the renewal of consent?

Radical sanation is a legal fiction that makes the marriage valid now, presuming that the consent still exists by removing any impediments, but create a legal fiction which pretends that it was always valid.

Since one is never sure about the original consent in such a case and whether it still exists, it is generally not done except when one party objects or refuses to renew consent before a delegated witness to fix the invalidity.

If it is possible that the parties renew consent before a delegated witness that is preferable and is much simpler, because it involves just a brief ceremony and some paperwork. A radical sanation needs a full canonical case and appeal to at least the Ordinary, if not Rome. Much more complicated and done only when there is a serious reason.
