When a married couple can not live together comfortably the dissolution of marriage is called ‘divorce’. An uncontested annulment case (in which the spouse does not show up at all in court) may take 2 to 4 years to complete, depending on the calendar of the court, the availability of witnesses and other issues such as child custody or property partitioning.
In the same way, if she refuses to sleep (have sex) with her husband for a considerable period of time without any justifiable reason, knowing that he will want to seek comfort elsewhere, the court can find that she passively gave her husband permission to commit adultery.
I spent my life in church; I passionately wanted to serve God in all elements of my life; I prayed fervently for who I was to marry and prayed fervently over getting married once I met the woman God seemed to have for me. In the twenty-five years since, I have served in Christian schools, spoken widely around the world, served many years as a missionary, and today teach in public school.
When the wife files a suit for dissolution of marriage the court issues notice to the opposite party i.e. the husband and if he fails to appear after the due process of posting and publication the court can proceed with the case ex-parte and pass a decree.
Conversely, in Davis v Davis 150 (1969), the Court said that when a wife is compelled to leave her husband for good and sufficient reason, she shall be entitled to support in the form of alimony pending determination of a suit for divorce brought by her husband.
