1. I got pregnant to my then bf when I was 21, and gave birth last March 2011. But we did not got married because he doesn't want to, we fought a lot during the pregnancy months because of this mostly because my family is pressuring me to get married before the baby comes out. My family are very religious and esteemed members of the church, so it's like they lost face because of what happened to me which added to the pressure even more.
And then, still during pregnancy months, my EX-BF went to see me where he proposed to marry me and give the baby a name. When my relatives heard about this, they all agreed to the proposal and demanded me to agree as well. I've told them that I do not want to marry him and that i'll be fine as a single parent.
A lot of things happened, so to make the story short I married my EX BF due to my family's wishes and also he signed as the father on the BC of my child and had lost contact to the real dad.
2. Now, after 3 years of marriage, and the hype died down, I realized that I did a very bad decision so I left him. I did try to make it work, but it just cant. Now my whole family hates me again, but I don't want to give in to pressure anymore. I've been away from him for a year now, I don't contact him. Though he contacts my mom and my mom is still insisting that I get back to him for the sake of the child.
He does not give any financial support, and I'm not demanding anything from him because I know I'm the one who left. So I'm shouldering all the responsibility now.
3. What I want now is to be legally free. I wanted to know if I could file an annulment and what are the grounds that I can use for it. I want to talk to him about it but it he is still insistent on getting back together. Is it possible to file a case even if he does not agree?
Sorry for the long post, I hope you can help me.
