If I had known that he never wanted kids, I would not have married him.

Under GA law, an annulment can be based upon a misrepresentation or fraud at the time of the marriage. The spouse seeking the annulment must show that they became aware after the marriage of something about their spouse that, if known prior to marrying, they would not have married.

For example, one spouse's misrepresentation of sexual preference or financial condition would be considered a material misrepresentation that may have prevented the other spouse's willingness to marry. And in all liklihood, (as in your case), of a spouse lying about wanting to have children.

At this point, you need to consult directly with a family law attorney in your area.
