Fredrick v. Fredrick

Facts:

A husband filed a Bill of Complaint against a wife for a divorce on the grounds of cruelty and constructive desertion. The wife filed an Answer denying the husband’s charges and a Cross-Bill praying for a divorce on the grounds of adultery and cruelty. The Circuit Court of Fairfax (Virginia) granted the divorce and ordered the husband to pay child support, marital residence to be sold and splits equally. No spousal support was awarded.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Cruelty goes beyond physical violence or conduct which renders cohabitation unsafe, causing reasonable apprehension of bodily harm or injury. Cruelty may consist of collective acts of mistreatment, including merciless abuse and mortification not amounting to physical abuse, but rather can also be emotional or mental mistreatment. However, a fault divorce based on cruelty cannot be granted solely because the parties are unable to cohabitate together in peace. Profanity, harsh language, rudeness or dominating behavior that does not threaten actual harm, do not amount to cruelty sufficient to constitute grounds for divorce. Further, a single act of physical cruelty does not constitute grounds for divorce, unless its severity endangers life, indicates the intent to commit serious bodily harm in the future, or the precedent or attendant circumstances show that the acts are likely to be repeated.
