Canon 1146. The baptized party has the right to contract a new marriage with a Catholic party:

1. if the other party responded negatively to the interrogation or if the interrogation had been omitted legitimately;

2. if the non-baptized party, already interrogated or not, at first persevered in peaceful cohabitation without affront to the Creator but then departed without a just cause, without prejudice to the prescripts of cann. 1144 and 1145.
