In case anybody is wondering, yes I do support the Church's teaching on divorce, and I will never personally handle such a matter. As both the Church and Bible teach, an otherwise sacramental marriage can only be nullified if there was a barrier to the marriage's initial valid enactment. There are some instances, of course, where physical separation of the spouses can be tolerated. But to say that divorce is allowable in the Church is akin to saying that God's sacraments (which are forms of salvific grace) are unimportant.
