What are grounds for divorce???

What are ‘grounds for divorce’? A friend told me I need to have this before I get started on the paperwork – we’ve not been living together for a few years now so what should I be saying?


    Grounds for divorce is a legal term for the reason that your marriage has broken down beyond repair. There are five grounds for divorce in England and Wales:
    Unreasonable behaviour
    Two years separation if you both agree
    Five years separation if your partner won’t agree
    It sounds like two years separation is most relevant for you, here is more information on ‘two years separation’ or you can find out more details about all the reasons for divorcing here .
