A quick definition of fraudulent marriage:

Fraudulent marriage is when two people get married, but one of them lies about something very important, like their religion or ability to have children, and the other person doesn't know the truth. This is not a real marriage because it was based on a lie. It is different from a sham marriage, where both people know they are not really getting married but go through the ceremony anyway.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: A marriage based on a misrepresentation regarding some issue of fundamental importance to the innocent party, who relies on the misrepresentation in the decision to marry. The misrepresentation must concern something of fundamental importance to a marriage, such as religious beliefs, the ability to have sexual relations, or the ability or desire to have children.

Example: John tells Jane that he wants to have children and they get married. After the marriage, Jane finds out that John had a vasectomy and cannot have children. This marriage is considered fraudulent because John misrepresented his ability to have children, which was a fundamental issue for Jane in deciding to marry him.

This example illustrates how a fraudulent marriage is based on a misrepresentation that is essential to the decision to marry. In this case, Jane relied on John's statement that he wanted to have children and would be able to have them. If she had known the truth, she may not have married him.

i've heard great things about UVA! I visited upenn and hated it so much / felt so uncomfy there and the starbucks by campus got robbed while i was there waiting for my tour to start lol
@OptimisticOutlier That sounds terrible, I'm sorry you had to experience that lol. Can I ask what made you feel uncomfortable? Like the sketchy vibes of the city or like the camp\us itself etc.?
penn is in a nice area
right next to drexel
it was campus itself, honestly i can't explain what it actually is. I felt the same way when I was touring schools for undergrad, pretty much pulled up to upenn and told my mom i knew i didn't like it and didn't need to take the tour lol
would argue with the nice area piece lol i think all of philly is kinda scary, someone pulled a gun on my team while we were down for a football game at upenn and walking around at night
but that said, i'm pretty happy i moved to pa after school and i know lots of people love upenn!
