Lack of consummation
If the marriage was never consummated you may have grounds for annulment. The longer the marriage goes on, the harder this claim will be to believe.
Lack of, or inability to consent
If you did not have the mental capacity to consent to the marriage. A few examples of this are being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, having a mental disability, or having an illness that caused diminished mental capacity.
The person you married is already married to someone else. It is illegal to be married to more than one person at the same time.
When one spouse fails to disclose to the other that they are physically unable to produce children prior to the marriage.
When certain facts are withheld prior to the marriage that would have prevented the marriage from occurring in the first place.
A marriage can be annulled if you are threatened into it by force, duress, or coercion.
