Apparently there may be nothing saying clergymen (or bishops and different ministers of the church) to be married to the alternative intercourse (same-sex marriage, sadly, is.an entire completely different story) Whereas the Anglican Church underneath Henry VIII needed to stay single and positively celibate, Edward VI did away with this restriction when he turned King of England in 1547.
Anglican clergymen may be married once they turn into clergymen, or get married whereas they’re clergymen. There’s one exception to this, and that’s in case you acquired divorced: If you happen to’re an Anglican priest, you’re not allowed to remarry. (Apparently you possibly can in case you dwell within the U.S. and Canada, that are extra lax about these items.)
Realizing this may give Grantchester followers some hope. And it actually may give reporter Ellie Harding (Lauren Carse) some, as properly. As quickly as she meets Will, followers might inform she felt some methods about him. Too dangerous Geordie instructed her, “I wouldn’t trouble, he’s celibate.” Ellie replies, “Oh, you’re that Will. Ought to change your identify to Gained’t.”
So, Will can undoubtedly have a associate. And he can get married. However will he? That kiss between Ellie and Will was fairly steamy, so IDK, Will. We respect your decisions, however a life-time with out intimacy?! Solely time will inform.
