Dear Cousin Lisa,

The impediment of consanguinity is caused by a blood relationship between both parties to a proposed marriage themselves.? There is another impediment, affinity, that is caused by a blood relationship between one party to a proposed marriage and the previous spouse of the other party.??? The former is a relationship based on ancestry by blood; the latter is a relationship not in blood but in law, which is why we refer to these relatives as "in laws".??

Subject: [Q-R] question about affinity & dispensation



In the marriage record I asked about yesterday,
the information written in the margin said the marriage
was rehabilitated about 3 months later when there was
later discovered to be a fourth degree of affinity between
the couple.

I want to be sure I am on the right track here. Does this
mean there was some relationship by marriage between
the groom & bride at the generation of their great grandparents?

Also, this was a second marriage for the groom. Is it
possible the relationship was between his first wife's family
and the second wife's family?

I'm trying to figure out where I need to look to find the
connection.

Thanks,
Lisa
