Say that a couple was married despite an impediment, which is usually justification for annulment. Some examples of impediments include:
- One of them was abducted (raptus, or bride kidnapping) and has been under the kidnapper's control since to the point of developing Stockholm syndrome.
- The two are close blood relations and there is an issue of consanguinity.
Now let's say that both married people do not wish to have their marriage annulled. Can a third party, such as their families, ask for an annulment?
