The only ground for divorce and that is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.  To satisfy the court that there has been an irretrievable breakdown one of the following five facts must be proved:

  1. 1. The Respondent has committed adultery and the petitioner finds it intolerable to live with the Respondent.
  2. 2. The Respondent has behaved in such a way that the petitioner cannot reasonably be expected to live with the Respondent.
  3. 3. The Respondent has deserted the petitioner for a continuous period of at least two years immediately before the start of the divorce.
  4. 4. You have lived apart for a continuous period of at least two years immediately before the start of the divorce and the Respondent consents to a decree being granted.
  5. 5. You have lived apart for a continuous period of at least five years immediately before the start of the divorce.
