Would contraception constitute grounds for annulment?

Question:

If a couple is on contraception on their wedding day and are using it for years, could that be grounds for an annulment?<br /> <br />

Answer:

Use of contraception from the beginning of a marriage is not in and of itself grounds for finding the marriage to be null. But if from the outset either party has the explicit or implicit intention never to bring children into the world at all, or to deny the other’s right to sexual acts open to procreation, this could make it possible to declare the marriage null and void.
