Thank you for the opportunity to assist you. The answer is yes, annulment of marriage is permitted under Virginia Code 20-89.1. An annulment is granted when a marriage is void or voidable, i.e. unlawful, from the beginning. It is NOT granted when people become unhappy with each other.
my problem is we have not consumated our marraige. i have not slept with her since our marraige norhave i ever had sex with her at any time she would rather sleep with her girl friends
When did the marriage take place?
19 october 2012
Unfortunately, consummation is not required under modern law, only under common law. (The "old" English version of our laws.) So this would not be a grounds for annulment.
i guess there is not much a foolish 86 year old man like me can do i thought i could help her out medicallly by helping her with my pension benifits which i have. thanks you guys anyway
I'm sorry. Don't be so hard on yourself. While you may not be able to annul, you could always divorce. It would probably be fairly straight forward if your finances are not co-mingled, you haven't bought property together, etc.
