I had been dating a guy for 4 years and living together and we were common law married. Anyways, while still living together and TOGETHER, but in a fight, I married Chi because my then boyfriend, David, decided 4 years wasn’t enough time to want to get married.
Chi and I never slept together and after the act, we both agreed it was stupid and rebellious of me. I just wanted to prove a point to David. But then Chi went missing.
We were not close before, but his e-mail and number don’t work anymore. I have been looking for him for almost 3 years now and nothing! No facebook or anything. I have no way of contacting him.
Not sure what to do. I want to move on:
Never selpt together, agreed it was stupid and I was common law to David.
Is this grounds for anullment? Also, if you have gone though it, what was the process, who did you talk to, fees etc?

You cant get an annullment after 3 years. It has to be a divorce. There is a very short time limit to get an anullment, depending on which state you live in, but its definitely less than 3 years.

Actually, my brother and his ex-wife got an annullment, and they were married for 3.5 years. I don’t know the details though.

Ummm, I would definitely talk to someone that deals with marriage and divorce in your state. The fact that you can’t find this guy, and have had no contact with him might be extenuating circumstances

You should probably seek the advice of an attorney or at least see if your family court has a self-help center. Also, legal advice from a wedding website is not the way to go. I am a law student, working in family law, and in my state there is no amount of time limiting an annulment. It is not a problem that you do not know where he is, there are ways to get around that.
