If the relationship within a marriage has become seriously disturbed and you no longer see a future for your marriage, you can decide to divorce, either alone or in consultation with your partner. Spouses can divorce by mutual consent or on the grounds of irretrievable breakdown of the marriage.

Of course, it never ends with the divorce alone. There are often joint assets that need to be divided or the spouses have a business together. If the spouses also have children together, a good, balanced arrangement must be made, while taking the wishes of each into account.
