Annulmentgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Catholic : One Thread
My wife is from another country. We got married two years ago, in the Catholic church. At the time I had recently had a back surgery wich required heavy use of narcotics. After the marriage, we consumated only once and have never since.
We have gotten a Divorce and she is now returning to her country. I have considered getting an anullment, but I don't know where to beguin. She is from Costa Rica.
Should the anullment be petitioned here or in the country we got married? And on what grounds would anullment be given for my case?

I believe you have to petition for the anullment in the diocese you got married in.
> "And on what grounds would anullment be given for my case?"
You have not given any facts to support an anullment. You have to provide more inforation, but better yet, discuss this issue with a priest.
Note, that just because you and your wife have seperated is not grounds for an annullment, as I am sure you are aware of.

I am sorry if I was too vague. 6 months before our marriage I had a spinal colum fusion. This hindered my mobility and changed some of my functions forever. With the physical training came drugs to eliminate swelling and pain. These I have to take every day.
Her attitude toward me changed since our marriage and I just don't know who she is anymore. She divorced me and I wanted to get an anullment based on my physical condition and the fact that I was heavily medicated during the months leading to our wedding.
