The law requires that "grounds" (valid reasons for divorce prescribed by law) for divorce must exist and be proven to the court even if the parties agree that a marriage should end. A mere separation by mutual consent will not be considered desertion.
Further, if one spouse leaves because the other has committed acts that legally amount to cruelty, then the spouse who leaves is not guilty of desertion.
A divorce from the bond of matrimony is a complete and absolute divorce.
Any person granted a divorce from bed and board may ask the court to "merge" the decree into a divorce from the bond of matrimony after at least one year has passed from the date the parties originally separated. Willful desertion or abandonment Desertion or abandonment requires both the breaking off of cohabitation and an intent to desert in the mind of the offender.
