What is the difference between annulment and nullity of marriage?
Nullity (or annulment) is not the same as divorce. Divorce is a declaration ending a valid marriage. Nullity is a declaration that a valid marriage never existed. A decree of annulment can only be made if one of the parties to the marriage applies to the court for a nullity.
What is it called when you get married when you’re already married?
Bigamy is the legal term that describes someone who is married to more than one person at a time.
What happens if you don’t consummate your marriage?
Consummating the marriage, or entering a sexual relationship after the wedding, at least once is the factor that decides whether a spouse seeks a divorce or an annulment. Divorce laws vary by state, however, many states recognize that a failure to consummate a marriage is grounds for annulment.
