TSC 533 Engagement to Marry and the Tribunal
Faculty: Rev. Jude Onogbosele, J.C.D. (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
In the 1983 Code of Canon Law, canon 1062 on Engagement to Marry may no longer be an effective contract before the Tribunal to force a marriage. Nevertheless, the history of the concept of Engagement shows the development of Canon Law, and highlights a number of important principles in marriage law, especially free consent. The ultimate goal of this tutorial is to familiarize the canonist with the need for free consent at the time of the Canonical Form of marriage.
