DivorceDivorce Denied For Failure to Prove Grounds

May 2, 2007

After recently staying a decision after trial so as to urge the New York State Legislature to adopt a no-fault divorce bill, Justice Robert Ross, in another case, denied a husband a divorce because he failed to prove that his wife had constructively abandoned him.

From the account of case appearing in Newsday, the wife opposed the divorce solely to gain ad,vantage on the economic issues.    This is the very evil no-fault divorce is intended to cure.

It is not uncommon in cases where neither party has a fault grounds for divorce, for one party to oppose the divorce, not because he/she desires to preserve the marriage, but to extract some concession from his/her spouse-the end result-more expensive and more acrimonious divorces,   In other words, absent no fault divorce, freedom has a cost.
