The closest would be 2 years separation with consent. Apart from that, no. There always must be a Petitioner and a respondent.
Is there a mutual option?
No. It is possible to be separated in the same house but it is not so simple as living in different rooms. You must live totally separate lives, that means no cleaning, cooking, washing, shopping together.
does living in separate rooms for over two years but in the same house count as separation?
The petitioner controls the timescale of the divorce. That is the only difference. There are no financial implications, there''s no"punishment" for adultery or unreasonable behaviour.
And what are the implications of being the petitioner and the respondent?
