Can anyone tell me what would count as unresonable nehaviour?

If I can demonstrate he is financially irresponsible?

If I can demonstrate he is virtually uninvolved with family life?

If I just say "he is a fucking arse" will that do?

I haven't filed. Am considering. I suspect he is too.

We both work full time. We don't a thing.

How will debt be divided? Som in my name. Some in his name. Some in both names.

behaviour can be almost anything. it could be that he leaves his socks on the floor and you have to keep asking him to pick them up and put them in the laundry basket. you don't need to 'demonstrate' or prove it. "financially irresponsible and emotionally distant" would do it.

Does anyone know what happens with debt?

You may get some more replies on the legal section, am sure there are some family law people on here....

Also, you are usually able to make a free half an hour appointment with a solicitor, who will be able to outline these things for you, then you can make a considered decision.

When I decided to divorce my exh I also bought a book from Waterstones, which covered the legal process and was really useful.

Good luck with everything smile.

I bought a book from Which? How to Divorce - its a good informative book.

I would go to CAB for some free advice or you can see a solicitor for 30 mins free of charge.

No advice on what constitutes unreasonable behaviour - my exH had an affair so it was easy.

Havin just dvorced my ex on grounds of ureasonable behaviour, yes emotional distance and bein crap with money were in there! Dates are useful i have to say. ur only problem would be if he contested it. mine didn't agree but didn't contest ! Only didn't agree because he was worried about access to child.

I had a long list even him avoidin spendin time as a family to do his hobbies INSTEAD!

Debt wise i have kept mine and he has kept his.

It is soooooo worth it i am soo much happier and a few stone lighter without even tryin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Life is too short to be unhappy!

good luck!And a huge amount of hugs!!!!!!!!!!

just put my petition in and my u/b reasons include financial secrecy (borrowing money against house without telling me), lack of intimacy/unwilling to spend time with me, embarrassment, etc. He check it over before I put it in and was fine with it.

we are about to do a consent order to say that i'll keep the house and won't touch his pension and that any other debts are kept by those responsible.

only just put forms in but feel better already and he joked today that i should wrap up the absolute and give it to him for xmas!

fingers crossed!!!

this might help
