Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton just had their path to the altar cleared — by a Catholic Church decision to annul her marriage to Gavin Rossdale.

The Catholic Church doesn’t allow divorced people to have church weddings, but it does grant annulments — which state that the previous marriage was “not valid” for one of many reasons.
