I have no idea, but God actually says that married people should have sex.

Are you talking about widows and widowers who remarry?  Are you talking about a divorced couple that reconciles?

Or are you talking about divorced people remarrying someone else while their spouse is still alive?  I don't think Catholicism condones this unless it is some kind of exception where they do not acknowledge the wedding.  Why would they marry if they are not going to have sex?

I think Roman Catholics allow divorce or just living apart to join holy orders (become a monk or nun) if both consent to it.  But not remarriage while the other spouse is alive.

   I guess what i'm getting at is the Pope statement a few years ago about remarried catholics who 1. Has a living ex 2. Don't qualify for annulement. the Pope is welcoming people (remarried) and not asking them to divorce but requiring them to refrain from sex which according to the RCC is a mortal sin. That brings up to this senerio can this couple love each other, romance, kiss, hold hands just no sex and that be ok. Seem like they are called to live like brother and sister but not to divorce.

I guess they can kiss and live each other just no sex idk just weird catholic stuff

Who cares what he said? Follow the word of God, not some man dressed up as a woman and walks like one. It is insane to think a man and a woman living together under one roof can avoid sex if both are straight, impossible to do it for any length of time, much less forever. How can you kiss and not desire sex? I haven't figured that one out yet~acutally most men can and desires to bypass the kissing and just get down to business. But if one dresses up as a woman and walks like one as well, maybe he can. But I would not trust them around little boys under the same roof.

If 'illegally' married couples, illegal by church law in the RCC are shacking up and kissing each other, then you'd think they'd see this as setting themselves up to be tempted by having adulterous sex.  It's kind of like unmarried individuals shacking up in the same house.

Maybe the idea is to normalize having divorced and remarried (not the same spouse divorced from while a divorced spouse is alive) coming to church and partaking of communion.  The congregation could 'assume' they aren't having sex and have a don't ask don't tell policy. Maybe they want to be like Protestants so that divorce contrary to scripture doesn't have to be a big deal to them.

They have a rather strict conservative approach to divorce and remarriage.  But there are some 'liberal' exceptions.  If a Roman Catholic marries a Protestant, a bishop might choose not to recognize it.  The RCC individual could divorce and remarry and the first one is deemed not to count. 

One early saint said a man who'd married a man who'd married a divorced woman could divorce her and remarry her.  The first marriage was deemed illegal and illegitimate.

anyone who who's married, especially a Christian. should already know that one must NOT hold out their body from their spouse, unless there's a very good reason. but even then it should NOT be for the duration of their marriage. and they BOTH, have to agree on whatever the situation is.

NOTICE ,(1Cor. 7:4,5 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control).

so everything that comes with being married, should be applied to one's marriage. peace
