I will get rid of my wife, Catherine of Aragon, she's no longer young to have more children, and she couldn't gave us a male heir.
A divorce was not that simple issue. In fact, it was a very complicated one. Henry VIII was a Roman Catholic, this faith believed in marriage for life it don't recognize, let alone support, divorce.The Roman Cathlic Chruch simply did not allow it.
Pope I was thinking... what about a Papal Dispensation? You know Catherine can't have children anymore, and I want to marry Anne.
Henry, you are the King of England, but that won't change nothing to the way Catholic Church banned divorce for others.
