How does this sound - take 2? was created by siriusB
The respondent has behaved in such a way that the petitioner cannot reasonably be expected to live with the respondent

Not taking on consistent financial responsibility, refusing to get job during winter months and only working part-time during summer months. This left me under constant stress, worrying about ensuring all bills were paid and money was available to cover emergencies.

Not assisting in running of marital home – taking on no domestic responsibility leaving all household chores and gardening to be decided and implemented by me – ultimately exhausting when couple with full-time shift work in law enforcement.

Failure to provide support and care during my incapacitation with serious back injury. During I time where I could barely walk Mr xx wouldn’t do the simplest of things such as make me hot water bottles when I asked him or cook me a meal, however during this period he was spending a great deal of time providing moral and domestic assistance for an female acquaintance who had just gone through a bereavement.

Refusing to acknowledge his depressive behaviours (such as apathy and anhedonia) and the impact that had on us a couple (we stopped socializing either with others or together).

Sirius,
Looking good - remember on a previous post that it is good to give a couple of specific examples of each behaviour within the last six months.

See this post, specifically Attilla's (Wiki's fave solicitor ;)) comments:

www.wikivorce.com/divorce/Divorce-Forum/...l-needed-for-UB.html

My wife's petition made me out to be so dreadful, I didn't recognise myself. Doesn't help in future discussions to be too inflammatory.

Best of luck,

Mike

This looks good to me. The only inconsistency I can see (sorry I was an academic/textual scholar in a previous life) is that in point one you say 'he refuses to get a job in winter months etc etc' but in point two you say his refusal to take domestic responsibility is 'exhausting when couple with full-time shift work in law enforcement' - do you mean you both do full-time shift work?, or, do you mean 'coupled' with 'my' full-time shift work in law enforcement?

Have amended it to say it is I who do the full-time shift work.

Any other factors I should be putting in? It very hard to generate specific examples when is more tepid creeping reasons!!!
