Marriages void ab initio ("from inception") do not legally exist in the first place because they are against the law in most states. They include incestuous marriages, such as when a person marries someone closely related by blood, or bigamous or polygamous marriages, where either one spouse or the other is married to someone else at the time of the wedding, whether or not the innocent spouse knows it. Courts usually annul these marriages easily as long as both spouses are living, because they were never valid to begin withl.
