WVC 48 - 3 - 104
§48-3-104. Affirmation or annulment of marriage.
If a marriage is supposed to be void, or voidable, or any
doubt exists as to its validity, for any of the causes set forth in
section 3-103, or for any other cause recognized in law, either
party may, except as provided in section 3-105, institute an action
for annulling or affirming the marriage. Upon hearing the proofs
and allegations of the parties, the court shall enter a judgment
order annulling or affirming the marriage. In every case where the
validity of a marriage is called into question, it is presumed that
the marriage is valid, unless the contrary is clearly proved. If
the court orders that the marriage is valid, the finding of the
court is conclusive upon all persons concerned.
