Whether its a divorce or annulment, both have their reason when a marriage dun work, when a reason is not a reason but excuse, that is where the individual need to figure what he wants. I totally agree with verysadguy. Since marriage is a history, than such should not be place as still married in record. ROM can have their record, but all mean to make ppl pay for a full details or make the person hand over final judgement or divorce paper on the day of re-married.
Well.. when we find someone new, and intend to get along, we have to be honest about our past, But what is past might not be a reason for not having a future with the person. Well, some mind their future spouse married before, some dont, it depend on individual. We can say that a person who hit 40 and still not married must be something wrong, we can also say that this person was a divorcee and something is wrong... its never ending.
But since marriage is a history, record should be updated. Since annulment is a void marriage (under eye of law) and void means no more.. it should be erase off the record, since we are given single status, Divorce is different as its involved more things than annulment can be done. Therefore, status as divorce or date of married end should reflect, It should be all transparent.
For me, who had annulment (filed by my ex hubby with excuses), in the eye of law I am single, becos of his childish act. Is it fair for me to be shown only as when I am married and to him? Its not. I find this so called "law" unfair, and which law? which code? which section? not indicate.
