Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Where a divorce is sought on the grounds of cruelty or reasonable apprehension of bodily hurt, charges must be clearly proved. The witnesses shall state the facts, and not their opinions, and let the court determine the issues. The misconduct which will form a good ground for legal separation must be very serious and such as amounts to extreme cruelty entirely subversive of the family relations, rendering the association intolerable. It states that the cruelty that authorizes a divorce is anything that tends to bodily harm, and thus renders cohabitation unsafe; or that involves danger of life, limb or health; and angry words, coarse and abusive language, humiliating insults and annoyances in all the forms that malice can suggest, may as effectively endanger life or health as personal violence, and will, therefore, afford ground for relief by the court. When all of the evidence in a chancery cause, as well as the pleadings, have been reduced to writing, and the trial court has nothing before it but the written record, including the evidence that is prepared by others, it has little, if any, advantage of the appellate court in determining the right of the cause.
