Kris Humphries is finally taking action.  Ex-wife Kim Kardashian filed for divorce on October 31st, but Humphries wishes to bypass divorce proceedings by getting the marriage annulled, reports UsMagazine.com.  Humphries is crediting “fraud” as the reason behind the couple’s split, but only because the other options were unfitting.  “The whole ‘fraud’ thing is ridiculous.  If the marriage was a sham, he was in on it,” said a source.  “Did he not see the cameras or get a cut of whatever money was made?  The marriage was real.  It was just a terrible and unhappy one.”

What are some reasons to annul a marriage?

Cupid’s Pulse:

Annulling a marriage is often much easier and quicker than getting a divorce.  Here are a few reasons to do so:

1. Infedility:  If your new spouse is unfaithful within the first few months of your marriage, an annulment will most likely be granted by the Superior Court.

2. Bigamy:  If your spouse is married to another person at the time of the marriage, the marriage can be annulled.

3. Force: A marriage will most likely be annulled if one partner forced the other into the marriage, either by making threats, abduction or physical force.
