I am likely to be called as a witness in an annulment case.
The reasons my friend gives for seeking an annulment are 1) a defect in form and 2) the man having a secret, concurrent relationship ( and a child on the way!) during their engagement.
OK, so I think she has a case…
But, if I’m called as a witness, depending on what I’m asked, that’s not what I would talk about. I remember a lot of things that were disturbing about my friend’s attitude toward marriage/the man involved that worried me that she was more interested in having a wedding before she was thirty than in the man she was ‘marrying.’
I don’t think my friend will want to hear me say those things - she’s got very angry in the past when I’ve even hinted that maybe there was fault on both sides.
I want to know if, during the annulment process, the ‘plaintiff’ so to speak, hears or reads all the testimony given by witnesses. Or can a witness ask for some kind of privacy about their testimony regarding the state of mind of the person who has asked them to be a witness?
I feel like I could be in for ‘helping’ my friend get an annulment, but losing my friend in the process!
