Joe Kennedy's First Marriage: Still On

Well, well, well. It appears that Joseph Kennedy was unable to obtain that annulment after all (article from 1997 here). The following article from Time Magazine outlines the details of the decision issued by the Roma Rota in 2005, and kept secret until the final written document was prepared.

This decision is good news for Catholics who feared the process of annulment was beginning to take on the appearance, of what many in the secular world, refer to as "Catholic divorce." Interestingly enough, Sheila Rauch is Episcopalian, and many felt her non-Catholic status would not provide her with a fair appeal. Obviously, this was not the case.
