Art. 45 of The Family Code of the Philippines states 6 grounds by which the court can annul a marriage.

The grounds for annulment of marriage are:

1. Absence of Parental Consent. A marriage was solemnized and one or the other party was eighteen (18) years of age or over but below twenty-one (21) and consent was not given by the parents, guardian or person having substitute parental authority. The Petition of Annulment must be filed within five (5) years of having attained the age twenty-one. However, if the parties freely cohabited with the other as husband and wife after having reached the age of twenty-one (21) a Petition of Annulment can no longer be filed.

2. Mental Illness. One or the either party was of unsound mind at the moment of the marriage. But if the parties freely cohabited with each other after he or she came to reason the law prohibits the filing of a Petition.

3. Fraud. That the consent of either party was obtained by fraud, unless such party once having knowledge of the fraud freely cohabited with the other as husband and wife. The petition must be filed within five (5) of finding out the facts of the fraud.

4. That the consent of either party was obtained by force, intimidation or undue influence. Except when the same has ceased and the party filing the petition freely cohabited with the other as husband and wife. The injured party must file within five (5) years from the point in time the force, intimidation or undue influence disappeared or came to an end.

5. One or the other party was physically incapable of consummating the marriage, and such incapacity continues and appears to be incurable. The filing of the Petition of Annulment must be filed within five (5) years after the marriage.

6. Either party was at the time of marriage afflicted with a sexually-transmitted-disease (STD) found to be serious and seems to be incurable. This may also constitute fraud. The filing of the Petition of Annulment must be filed within five (5) years after the marriage.

SEPARATION: being separated from your spouse with or without communication is not grounds for annulment. It does not matter how many years you are separated. There is no law that annuls or voids a marriage automatically. Only a judge in a court of law can annul, void or nullify a marriage.

Reclusion Perpetua

Tingnan mo ang NSO MC mo, nakalagay doon ang marriage license number kung merun kang makita, At kung wala naman, posibleng makita mo dun na waived ang marriage lic ninyo na nagsasabing ang ikinakasal na nasa wastong edad at pagiisip ay matagal ng nagsasama sa iisang bubong. (I think 5 years if I remember it correctly)..

Kung walang marriage license na nakasulat sa MC, ground ito for null/void marriage unless waived ninyo ang isang article na nagsasabing nagsama kayo ng 5 taon o higit pa bago kayo ikinasal sa civil. I think Art 34 if my memory serves me right.

Kailangan mong isampa sa court ang petition mong mapawalang bisa ang kasal, bago ka magpakasal muli. Abogado ang kailangan mo.

Kung nakakuha ka ng MC sa NSO, it means, na register ang kasal. Pero hindi sa lahat ng oras ay nangangahullugan na valid ang kasal sa lahat ng pagkakataon.
