Hi, wondering if anyone can advise me please?
I got Married last July and my Husband agreed he would give up his rented flat and move into my flat so we could save up for a deposit to buy somewhere together. (The rent for my flat is cheaper) Its now April and he has now informed me he will not move in with me after all. When I try to discuss the issue you with him he just keeps fobbing me off. Am I the only Married woman who does not live with her husband?
Do I have any grounds for a Divorce as I do not see the relationship working going forward if things do not change?
I''m rather set in my ways and being married but living apart sounds rather attractive.
In Scotland there is only one ground for divorce, the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage proven by one of 4 facts - unreasonable behaviour, adultery, one year''s separation with consent of the other spouse or two years without. Most divorces are granted on the basis of separation and if you want to divorce my suggestion would be to separate, split any finances (there won''t be much, if anything, after such a short marriage) and wait one or two years then divorce.
This is the easiest and cheapest way forward and as long as there are no children you can use the simplified divorce procedure.
