Gwen Stefani is ready to walk down the aisle with Blake Shelton, but she has two obstacles in the way -- ex-hubby Gavin Rossdale and the rules of the Catholic Church.
Gwen's a devout Catholic, and she's insisting on a church wedding, but according to church law, she can't have an "official" wedding until her first marriage is annulled -- a complicated process that says the union never existed in the first place.
A source close to Gwen tells the National Enquirer, "Gavin refuses to say their marriage never existed. He isn’t going to pretend he wasn’t married just because it makes Gwen’s life easier. He thinks it’s wrong and stupid. He isn’t going to let Gwen sweep their marriage under the rug.”
Gwen and Gavin officially ended their marriage in 2016 -- a year after she started dating Blake.
- Different faiths have different rules, but rewriting history that way just seems weird.
- Annulments aren't all that rare --Rudy Giuliani has had two of them to allow for three church weddings.
- If she's REALLY devout, should she have been cheating on her husband in the first place?
- Couldn't she bend the rules and tie the knot in whatever church Blake belongs to?
