You Must Consummate A Marriage In Alabama

Posted by Steven D. Eversole | Oct 26, 2007 | 0 Comments

Alabama Appeals Court annuls couples marriage on failure to consummate grounds.  The Alabama Appeals Court has basically ruled that to be legally married in Alabama, you must consummate that relationship, or your marriage is subject to annulment.  An annulment is declaring your marriage to be null and void, as if you were never married.  The court reasoned that an unstated intent to never consummate your marriage relationship is a fraud rendering that marriage invalid.
