I went to see if I would be able to separate from my wife that left me two months after getting married. I was told I wasn't able to do so and that I had to wait for a year of being separated. Although I wasn't married for 3 months, I was told that if it was before 3 months of being married that I'd be able to do an annulment.
You do not indicate whom you went to see. Perhaps you simply received a bad answer.
There are very few instances where an annulment would be possible. Bigamy, incest, underage, and same sex marriage (until recently). Basically an annulment means that the marriage was not valid from the get go. Time is of very little consequence except in the instance where the defense of laches would apply. Just because you are not married long doesn't mean you are entitled to an annulment.
Annulments have more to do with the circumstances surrounding the marriage/want for separation, rather than the length of the marriage.
I doubt an attorney informed you that an under three marriage is eligible for an anulment. You do not state who told you, so I bet it was aquaintance. That information is of course wrong; you could be married one day and not be able to get an annulment. Annulments are based on a legal impediment to the marriage.
