Grounds for Divorce

There is only one ground for divorce, which is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.

The party applying for the divorce  must provide evidence that this has happened by proving one of the following five facts:

1.   Adultery: The other party has committed adultery and the applying party finds it intolerable to live with the respondent

2.   Unreasonable Behaviour: The other party has behaved in such a way that the applying party cannot reasonably be expected to live with the other party

3.   Desertion: The other party has deserted the applying party for a period of two years

4.   Two years separation: The parties have lived apart for two years and the other party consents to a divorce

5.   Five years separation: The parties have lived apart for five years.
