Marriages and divorces codified

6 October 2019

In an act of the Landtag, the Nobles of the Principality established regulations regarding marriages and divorce within the borders of the Principality.

First the act confirms the status of marriage as a holy sacrament which can only be enacted by the One, Holy, Apostolic and Catholic Church. It furthermore establishes that marriages may only be administered by recognized and ordained clergy of the same church.

Lastly it establishes that "divorce" shall be allowed for a maximum of 2 times if the Church deems that the partners were mistaken in soliciting the grace of marriage.
