Within A Marriage What Constitutes Physical Abandonment?

Generally, the ground of abandonment requires a voluntary separation by one spouse from the other for a period of one year or more with the intent not to resume cohabitation. The abandonment must be without the consent of the other spouse and be without justification. If physical abandonment is with the consent or acquiescence of the other spouse, it cannot be used as a ground for divorce.
