What is the Catholic Church’s teaching on divorce and remarriage?

Christ taught that the sacramental bond of marriage is permanent and lasting: So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate (Matthew 19:6) The annulment process helps to determine whether or not a sacramental bond actually took place on the day of the wedding. If one did, than another marriage would actually be a second marriage while the first one was still intact and this would be morally wrong. You can find an indepth discussion of this issue in Divorced. Catholic. Now What?

    I became a Catholic in 2003. I had been divorced twice before this time, once in1975 and again in1984. I did not re-marry. Second husband died in1909, first husband just passed away earlier this year,2012. I know i do not need an annulment, but I feel that I could use some Discussion with an educated person on the matter of love and marriage.
