    How does this work in the Anglican Church?

    I ask, and I am ok with no remarriage, because I am divorced with a toddler. I still remember the conversation where my wife told me she was going to divorce me. I asked could we do counseling and she said no. As much as I hate to say this it was probably for the best for me. She assaulted me, destroyed my stuff, was verbally abusive, destroyed the house, and other such things. Of course I was not perfect either but never did that.

    Current usages might vary (or not, for all I know), but the historic doctrine is pretty established.

    We are considering republishing this text, Edmund Bunny, “Of Divorce for Adultery, and Marrying again: that there is no sufficient warrant so to do.” (1610)

    Do Anglicans have annulments then?

    Mileage may vary according to province, perhaps even diocese, but annulments are a yes in my limited experience.
