What if my spouse won't agree to a Divorce?

To get a divorce, you must have a "grounds" for divorce.  Grounds simply means a reason for a divorce.   There are 13 grounds for divorce in Georgia, ranging from adultery to abuse.  However, nearly every divorce is granted on the grounds that the marriage is "irretrievably broken".    Basically, if one spouse believes the marriage if over, the marriage is over and the divorce is granted.  Your spouse cannot bully you into staying married and you are not forced to prove that your spouse is a bad person.
