Getting married for the first time can be stressful, let alone a third time. Under New York Domestic Relations Law, if a couple seeks divorce under the cause of action of abandonment, certain requirements must be met. The Elements for divorce based on abandonment are: A spouse’s intent not to return to the marital home; the abandonment continues for one or more year; and the defendant spouse’s departure was unjustified and without the abandoned spouse’s consent. Constructive abandonment consists of when one of the spouses doesn’t actually leave but repeatedly and unjustifiably ceases and refuses to have sex with the other spouse for one continuous year or more.
