BANNS OF MARRIAGE - The public announcement of the names of persons intending marriage. The object of their publication in church is to discover impediments, to avoid secret marriages, and to give interested parties an opportunity to intervene if they have reasons to do so. Banns are usually announced in church three successive times.
