We must next consider the impediments which supervene to marriage.
We shall consider (1) the impediment which affects an unconsummated marriage, namely a solemn vow: (2) the impediment which affects a consummated marriage, namely fornication.
Under the first head there are three points of inquiry:
A Whether either party after the marriage has been consummated can enter religion without the other's consent?
A Whether they can enter religion before the consummation of the marriage?
A Whether the wife can take another husband if her former husband has entered religion before the consummation of the marriage?
