The great majority of Christian marriages are valid - Ed Peters

From Catholic World Report Ed Peters writes:-

"Last time a ranking prelate (Cdl. Kasper) opined that half of all marriages were null his attribution of such a reckless assertion to Pope Francis himself could be dismissed as hearsay, deflected as referring to marriage in general and not Christian marriage in particular, or at least minimized as describing merely ‘many’ or even ‘half’ of all marriages. But none of those qualifications can be applied to blunt the impact of the pope’s startling claim “the great majority of our sacramental marriages are null”.

Pope also states, cohabiting Catholics being in “a real marriage [and having] the grace of a real marriage,” for commentary see here
