to marriage we mean certain restrictions, imposed by the law of God or of the
Church that render the marriage invalid or unlawful when they are violated in
entering into it. These restrictions regard age, health, relationship,
intention, religion and other matters affecting the good of the Sacrament."
Also note that...
"The Church can
dispense from or remove the impediments to marriage that arise from its own laws
(if applicable); but it cannot dispense from impediments that arise from the
laws of God and nature." (Baltimore Catechism)
Church may grant dispensations from the impediments to marriage or from other
laws, there must be a good and urgent reason for granting such dispensations.
The Church does not grant dispensations without cause and merely to satisfy the
wishes of those who ask for them." (Baltimore Catechism)
