Mexico Oaxaca Wedding

In this July 26, 2016 photo, newlywed Francisca Santiago, 65, stokes the fire while preparing hot chocolate in her Santa Ana home, in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. Santiago first met her husband, at the age of 16, in 1967 while tending goats in the fields outside of Santa Ana, and a few years later they were married in a civil ceremony. But until Pope Francis' reforms to the church's annulment process went into effect on Dec. 8, 2015, she didn't think she would ever be married to her husband, a divorcee, in a religious ceremony.
