ABSTRACT:
There are innumerable implications and consequences that can arise from lack of faith in the realization of the sacrament of marriage. Given that they have the right to realize marriages, it is important for all, Catholics and non-Catholics, believers and non-believers, to understand to what extent the canonical norm distinguishes between marriages that have as subjects Christian Catholic believers or Christian Catholics with a weakened faith, or Catholics who have lost their faith and no longer live their baptismal commitment. Starting from the value of baptism and finishing with the right to reject the sacramental reality of marriage, the different theories wish to highlight how complex the problem of lack of faith in marriage is. At the same time, there are also the aspects of intentionality, of the positive act of the will, of error, of the exclusion of sacramentality that may be the consequence of a wrong way of perceiving the importance of faith and of not living and acting on the basis of this great gift that helps us plan our life, collaborating with the will of God. The canonical norm tries to put us on the right track in which the faith and the true will to realize the marriage help and complement each other.

Keywords: Faith, baptism, marriage, baptized, unbeliever, consent, sacramentality, positive act of the will, ius connubii.
