My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am another expert with JustAnswer who is also in its Family Law section.
On this website, I do not always get to give good news, and I am afraid that this is one of these times.
It is too late. Rather, an annulment
is not based on time, but cause. To get an annulment in Texas, you'd need to show that:
-the person was underage;
-the person was forced into the marriage;
-the person was under the influence of narcotics;
-there is a prior marriage which never ended;
-one of the parties lacks mental capacity to enter into marriage;
-the person was forced into the marriage, or, was "tricked" into it; or
-one of the parties is impotent.Tex. Fam. Code Sec. 6.102 et seq
As such, simply being married for less than a certain amount of time is not enough for an annulment, I am afraid. Unless you can show one of the above, you have to divorce to end the marriage. I am sorry.
