Every day we speak with women, just like you, who are exploring their options as it relates to ending a marriage. There are two options, divorce and annulment. A divorce is a dissolution of marriage, meaning it terminates the marriage.
An annulment is different than a divorce because it basically states that the marriage never existed, it is cancelled or erased legally. Many women often think that an annulment is an alternative for divorce simply due to the short duration of the marriage. This is a common misconception. There must be legal grounds for annulment.
Common grounds for annulment include:
- Either person was already married
- Either person was forced into the marriage
- Underage marriage
- Mental illness or incapacity
- Marriage is prohibited by law, in most instances this is incestuous marriage
- Inability to consummate the marriage
