Brenda Johnston (plaintiff) and Donald Johnston (defendant) were married. Brenda filed for an annulment based on fraud. Donald agreed that the marriage should end but argued that the end should not occur via annulment. Brenda testified that Donald had a drinking problem of which she was not aware when they got married. Brenda also testified that although she knew Donald was unemployed when they got married, she expected the husband to obtain employment after getting married. The trial court ruled in favor of Brenda and annulled the marriage. Donald appealed.
