Annulment is a judicial procedure within secular and religious laws to annul the marriage.  Unlike divorce, it is generally retroactive, which means that a annulled marriage is considered invalid from the outset, almost as if it had never taken place (although some jurisdictions provide that the marriage is void only from the date of annulment; this is the case, for example. B in Section 12 of the Marriage Order Act 1973 in England and Wales).  In legal terminology, annulment renders a marriage null or void.  Article 6:228 of the Dutch Civil Code provides that an error-insigned contract is cancelled if a number of conditions are met. One of the conditions is that the wrong party would not have concluded the contract, but for the error. Another condition is that the other party be allowed or should have known the circumstances of the error and that it was obliged to inform the wrong party. It is essential that not all errors are enough to invalidate a contract, for example. B errors that relate only to future circumstances or errors regarding the nature of the agreement are not sufficient. You and your former spouse or partner may write an agreement themselves, but it is recommended that you speak to a lawyer.
An agreement on the execution of an illegal act is an example of non-agreement. For example, a contract between dealers and buyers is a non-contract, simply because the terms of the contract are illegal. In such a case, neither party can take legal action to enforce the contract. An inconclusive contract is invalid from the outset, while a cancelled contract may be cancelled by one or all parties. A cancelled contract is not invalidated by initio, but becomes invalidated later due to certain changes in the condition. In summary, the contracting parties do not have discretion in a nullity contract. Contracting parties are not entitled to enforce a nullity contract.  Under Dutch law, a non-applicable legal act is applicable and has not been annulled. When an act is cancelled, the cancellation has a retroactive effect and the situation of the parties before the cancelled act should be restored. Such a cancellation under Dutch law has an effect not only against the parties concerned, but also against any other person (except in certain cases provided for by law, for example. B annulment for early conviction – on the basis of so-called “actio pauliana”). Henry VIII of England had three of his six marriages annulled.
    These marriages were made with Catherine of Aragon (on the grounds that she was already married to her brother – although this annulment is not recognized by the Catholic Church); Anne Boleyn (on the grounds that she had supposedly seduced him with witchcraft and that she was unfaithful – he did not want to execute his legitimate wife, he offered her an easy death if she agreed to cancel her); and Anne von Kleve (for not taking charge of the marriage and the fact that she was previously engaged to someone else).
