Question 16.

Morning pater, is it true that our church only marries the same person up to 3 times? And what's the max age gap between the couple our church marries them?      

 

Answer to Question 16.

 

The question on how many marriages was answered further up, the answer is three. I'm not sure about the age gap. I believe men can be 14 years older and the woman up to 6 years older. Where the age gap is higher then special permission must be obtained from the bishop.
