Question:

Can cheating within a year after Marriage be considered grounds for an Annulment? How does it work?

Answer:

The answer to this question really depends on what state you live in.  Some states allow for an annulment if one spouse never intended to be faithful to the other spouse.  However, all states do not recognize this as grounds for an annulment. 

On the other hand, most states allow for an annulment in the case of fraud; this may be another avenue you could take to request an annulment.  You should contact an attorney in your area to determine what the laws are in your state and what your rights are.  Because you were only married for two weeks, there may not be dire consequences in regard to property if you have to get a divorce.  However, if you want it deemed that you were never married, an annulment is the only way to accomplish that.
