An annulment is similar to divorce, but not a divorce in actual term. It is also a court procedure that ends a marriage, but in case of annulment, a marriage is treated as if it never happened. The main purpose behind annulment and not divorce is said to be avoiding the stigma of divorce and avoiding the mental trauma attached to it post separation.
Normally the laws for annulment are different state wise in the United States; however there are four basic forms of annulments:
- If there is any type of fraud or mis-representation.
- Non-declaration of some important information / fact at the time of marriage.
- If either spouse refuses physical relations or is physically unable to have sex.
- Difference in basic understanding to carry out life together like one spouse wants children and the other one does not.
