I think he will agree to the divorce . We are both unhappy ! I tried very hard to get our marriage back on track after he had a fling and things were ok ish for a short while ! He went back to not putting any effort into our relationship. He has never wanted to support me and it has always been up to me to organise things in our family. It was my choice to not respond to his very rare advances because I find it hard to without there being any affection shown ! I have always explained how and why I feel a certain way and tried to talk things through but sadly it falls on deaf ears. He has also run up debts and put us into a financial mess . We don't have joint accounts because he won't ! I have shown him how he can makes things right but he just ignores me ! We basically have seperate lives!!

Hi
From what you have said you will have no problem in creating a divorce petition based upon your husband's Unreasonable Behaviour.
The behaviour does not have to be appalling - irritating and annoying is sufficient
There or four allegations is usually all that is needed
