What does constructive abandonment mean?

This term is used to describe one spouse’s unjustified refusal for a period of one year or more to have sexual relations with her or his spouse. However, if the refusal is consented to or acquiesced in by the other spouse, it ceases to be a ground for divorce. In addition, a spouse who locks out her/his spouse or whose abuse drives the spouse from the home may have committed constructive abandonment.
