Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • A divorce based on one year separation does not require any evidence regarding the nature of the marital relationship. The legislature enacted Va. Code Ann. § 20-91(9) to permit the granting of a divorce to either spouse regardless of fault and without any inquiry into the quality of the relationship, when the parties have lived separate and apart for the required period. Living separate and apart requires more than mere physical separation. The act of physically separating must be coupled with the intent to end the marriage at the time of the separation.  But physical separation is required before the court can even look at the intent of the parties at the time of the separation.
