Thank you for the opportunity to answer your question. I am sending this answer to you only a few minutes after you submitted your question.
Your question is unclear and I'm not quite sure what you want to know. My understanding is that you want to know whether an extra-marital affair is a basis for annulment. If you have other questions, please let me know what more you want to know using Reply.
An extra-marital affair is not grounds for annulment in any state. Instead, that could provide a basis for divorce in states that recognize fault grounds, like Georgia (but not California). Annulments are only granted in the most unusual circumstances, such as fraud, duress, or when a spouse didn't have the mental or legal capacity to marry.
