Im just not happy it was a big mistake taking this huge step. i would like to know what my options are.
You've hardly given the marriage a chance. In any case, unless your spouse committed adultery, even the grounds of extreme cruelty requires at least six months before you have grounds for divorce. So, best advice is for you and your spouse to see a marriage counselor and really make an effort to work out your differences before you give up on the marriage.
If you cannot resolve your differences, you will need to wait 6 months from the date of the marriage, before you can file. Unless adultry was committed, then you can file right away. Good luck.

There are also limited reasons, or grounds, for obtaining an annulment in New Jersey. An annulment treats the marriage as if it never took place. You should contact an attorney for a consultation to discuss all your options.
Although you might have to wait the 6 months to file, if you are serious about getting divorced quickly, you can get all of the paperwork together ahead of time so that this summer you could file a Complaint for Divorce along with a Property Settlement Agreement which outlines the terms of your divorce.
