What are the grounds for divorce?

There is only one ground for divorce and that is the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. This has to be proven by establishing one of the following facts:

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Two year separation (where the other party consents to a divorce)
  • Five year separation (no consent is needed in this case)
  • Desertion
