On these facts, if you raise
the issue, you would struggle with adultery, purely because of your
reconciliation. Just because it was weekends only is immaterial
Unless he admits adultery, my
suggestion would be to forget that is grounds for divorce, reconciliation or not.
The fact that continues to
live in Barcelona and will not return to the UK to live as husband and wife
might be grounds for unreasonable behaviour and to be frank, it is not
difficult to put together a case for unreasonable behaviour.
It might be worth having a
chat with him because remember that a petition for adultery is short, sharp and
to the point, and there is no reason to mention anybody's name. You petition
for it, and he agrees to it. Bang, done and dusted.
In addition, any solicitor's
costs are possibly going to be lower because there is no arguing.
Mention to him also but it doesn't
matter why you get divorced and who is at fault, any financial settlement is
exactly the same. The court does not apportion blame.
If you are unreasonable,
speaking terms, by all means, show him this thread, or ask him to post a
question if he thinks that you may not be altogether straight with him
