Russian Retiree Wants to Annul His Marriage as He Doesn't Remember It

A court of Chelyabinsk region has rejected the claim of one Ural retiree, who asked to annul his marriage as he doesn't remember getting married.

      According to the case materials, the 80-years-old Chelyabinsk region's citizen in 1997 married his 78-years-old chosen one. The newly married couple received a marriage certificate.

      But this year the retiree went to court, seeking the annulment of his marriage. He said he has lived with his wife since 1974 but their relationship soured and they broke up in 2008. By accident he found out that a marriage certificate of their wedding existed and now he wants to annul it.

      “The appellant views this marriage as invalid as he doesn't remember giving his approval, attending the marriage registration ceremony or signing the marriage certificate,” the court said in a statement. “He has no recollection of any of these events.” (via RIA Novosti)

      However, the handwriting examination proved that the sign on the marriage documents had been made by the forgetful retiree.  Besides, the registry office's workers said they remembered the marriage of that couple very well, as it were the oldest bride and bridegroom for the last few years.

      Asked why he will not simply divorce his wife, the retiree said that if the marriage were annulled he would not have split the apartment they shared.
