    I married 3 months and 1 day . I had left an abusive marriage of 10 years when I met himand we began talking about marriage I asked him to please be honest with me about himself being abusive or not. Then sunday after he hit me he apologized and said he wanted to tell me before we were married that he had abused his first 2 wives but he did not want to tell me because he was scared I would not marry him. Can I still file for an anulment we have no children together or made any purchases of any kind together
