I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
Where did you live before joining the Air Force?
Texas law requires that one of the spouses live there at the time the suit is filed, so we need to look at other options if you've already moved to Ohio.
If you only moved out of Ohio because you joined the Air Force and intended to go back, you're still considered a resident. Being transferred by the military doesn't alter your residence in that scenario, because it's not considered voluntary.
You could also file in New York, since that's where your spouse lives. NY law allows for annulment where consent to the marriage was obtained via fraud or force.
Unfortunately, since you have moved out of Texas, you cannot file for annulment there. Texas Family Code, Section 6.301 requires that you live in the county where you file. The law allows someone stationed there with the military to file for divorce while they or their spouse is stationed in Texas, but not after leaving. Section 6.304 (same link). If you file in Texas, your husband can get the case dismissed.
If you file in NY or DC, he cannot. If you wait 6 months and file in Ohio, he cannot dismiss the case.
