Many people have mistakenly heard of annulments as a “get out of jail free” card, in which they can wipe their marriage from memory and pretend it never happened. However, despite many people wishing for something more permanent than just divorcing their spouse, divorces are the default for a reason. A very small percentage of marriages are eligible for an annulment, and these qualifications vary from state to state. The primary difference between a divorce and an annulment is the divorce indicates a marriage once to place but ended, while an annulment completely expunges the marriage from both of your histories.
Though many couples amid a divorce wish to erase the relationship from existence, an annulment can only be granted in the strictest of circumstances, such as:
- Physical impotence, proven by a doctor
- Either spouse was forced into the marriage
- Either spouse was tricked into the marriage under false pretenses
- Either spouse was underage at the time of the marriage
