Quote from: Evie on September 18, 2010, 01:24:08 PMThey already discussed and dismissed the coercion grounds for an annulment. Mirjana had other options offered, but she freely chose remarriage over the other options she had.
Quote from: Alkari on September 18, 2010, 08:55:43 PM"Christian charity" in the Gwynedd church?!! ROFL.What about their attitude to the Deryni, putting to death even innocent little children purely because they were born Deryni, who knew nothing about who or what they were? Or trying to burn adults at the stake? Is that "Christian charity"? I think not.
QuoteMoreover, in RL it wasn't until the later middle ages that the Church actually became involved in all aspects of betrothals and marriages. Betrothal was very much a civil affair, and in most cases a betrothal would not have even had a priest in attendance - it was a civil, legal contract. In the case of Dhugal and Mirjana, this was a contract recognised at law, never mind the addition of the Church, and there were no easy 'outs' such as you seem to wish for.
