Prior to obtaining a marriage license and participating in the marriage ceremony, Plaintiff and Defendant were “both drinking to the point of intoxication.”

“As a result of his intoxication, when Defendant suggested to Plaintiff that they should marry, Plaintiff reacted on impulse and without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions," he alleged.

He claimed his consent to marriage was obtained “by fraud in that prior to her marriage to Plaintiff, Defendant did not disclose to Plaintiff the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person.”
