All of the reasons Mona gives are valid.
Of course, I will never know, but in reading a marriage contract that was later annulled, I saw that one of the items in the contract called on the prospectiver bride to support the mother of the prospective groom-- in France.
The prospective bride had been born in New France in 1663 and was a widow with no children. She had inherited her deceased husband's estate.
I wonder whether that particular clause made her think twice!

I was wondering if anyone would have the answers to the question:

What grounds would be needed to annul a marriage contract?  Jeanne 
Labbe's  marriage contract to Pierre Mercier was annulled in Oct 1669.

Thanks, Lue
