Once the court issued the Decree of Annulment based on any of the above-mentioned valid grounds, the parties may choose to remarry. Legal separation on the other hand, would only allow the spouses to live separately but does not sever the bonds of marriage, thus parties in legal separation, in any case, would not be allowed to remarry.
