Annulment Singapore Forum- Fact or Fiction?

As an annulment lawyer in Singapore, I act for many clients who are married for under 3 years. Many of my clients first turn to an annulment Singapore forum for help. My advice is- do not believe everything you see in an annulment Singapore forum. If you have a question, feel free to contact us.

The first question that many of you may have in mind is: what is an annulment Singapore?

Different posts in annulment Singapore forum will give you different answers. Not all answers in annulment Singapore forum are accurate.

An annulment, unlike a divorce, renders a marriage void from the start. This means that the marriage is deemed to have never taken place. After an annulment, you become a single rather than a divorcee.

In addition, you can file for an annulment in Singapore even if you have been married for less than 3 years. On the other hand, you need to be married for at least 3 years before you can get a divorce in Singapore.

Another popular question in annulment Singapore forum is- what is the most common reason for annulment in Singapore?

Wilful refusal to consummate the marriage

If your spouse wilfully refuse to consummate the marriage with you after the marriage, you can file for an annulment in Singapore.

Recently, I came across an article about a Spanish reality show. A couple appeared on the show. The husband, Alejandro, claimed that he was divorcing his wife because she had slept with her adoptive mother. In the show, Alejandro claimed that his wife Tania dated for a year and Tania wanted to wait until marriage to have sex. However, Tania allegedly refused to have sex on the wedding night.

Tania then shared her shocking version of events. She said that she was born without a vagina (Rokitansky syndrome). She added that after her engagement to Alejandro, she decided to have surgery to form a vagina. According to Tania, she had called her mother to help her “dilate”.

See: Martha Cliff, “Shocking moment husband accuses his wife of sleeping with her own MOTHER… only for her to reveal he is trying to divorce her because she doesn’t have a vagina”, MailOnline, 27 April 2017

Strictly speaking, Tania’s case does not fall under “wilful refusal to consummate” and if her husband were to file for annulment in Singapore, he may not succeed.
