Many people believe that an annulment is based on the length of the marriage. However, how long the couple has been married is not the determining factor about whether or not a spouse can get an annulment. You can read through the reasons for an annulment on this government website. You can read the language of the law regarding the grounds for getting an annulment on our NC Statutes page.
