Grounds for a Divorce
The court will only grant you a divorce if your marriage has ‘irretrievably broken down’, meaning that one or more of the following grounds exists:
Adultery by one of the parties to the marriage.
Unreasonable behaviour by one of the parties to the marriage.
Desertion for a period of at least two years.
If you both agree to the divorce, two years separation is a ground.
If your husband or wife won't agree to the divorce then five years separation is a ground.
