Powerful aphrodisiac soup grounds for annulment?

San Francisco, CA |

My husband and I got married on a whim last month in Vegas. It was a huge mistake. It turns out my husband tricked me into eating a powerful aphrodisiac called “Soup #5” at an Asian restaurant shortly before we got married. I’m convinced this soup impaired my judgment. Is this grounds for annulment?

Here's more info about the soup: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soup_Number_Five

  1. I would probably look for other grounds if you want an annulment... but divorce is certainly an option. A state normally has a public policy to validate marriages, hence annulments are hard to get except for extreme circumstances...

  2. If that soup really works you should market it. No court will grant an annulment on the basis of this soup. Even if it stimulated your desire to sleep with him, it did not impair your judgment and force you to marry him. You can file for a simple divorce and be rid of him in 6 months.
