I think your sister is going through a really hard time right now and you should just be there for her and be supportive and not be so concerned with her sex life or lack there-of (as I don’t believe it is any of yours or your family’s business).

I know nothing about the Catholic church, but whether or not your sister had sex does not mean she isn’t married. She is in fact legally married.  I don’t know the terms of getting an anullment, but she probably will be able to – again, regardless of having sex.

why exactly is this of your concern anyways?

Her having sex has nothing to do with being married, If they went to the Justice of the Peace then they are married. She can file for an annulment if they meet the standards for one. If I were your sister I’d be beyond pissed that you are so worried about what I’m doing with my vagina while I am going through an extremely difficult time.

Look if they were not married in the church then they only need to go through the legality I think. unless the church has blessed the union. As for the sex if they did consumate the marriage yet it was outsie the church I think it is still a legal thing. This is her problem though not yours,she needs to talk with the priest and then she can do whatever she needs to to end the Justice of the Peace marriage.

She can get married AND divorced as many times as she likes…because marriage is a legal contract.

Let her live her life- if she sleeps with someone, it’s her business. If she DID get married and is no longer happy/regrets it/whatever, that is her business. As her sister, you should be nothing but supportive of her during this difficult time. She doesn’t need her family to criticize and isolate her, I’m sure she has plenty on her mind as it is.

you can get an anulment after consumation. my friend’s stepfather had one and he had 2 children with his first wife.

If not having sex magically meant that people weren’t legally married, there would be a loooooooot of couples out there with invalid marriages.

Her whole entire relationship is none of your business unless she asks for your advice/confides in you. 

 

Let it go.
