Gardner v. Gardner

Facts:

Appellant former husband challenged the judgment of the Circuit Court of Prince William (Virginia), which denied his motion for leave to file an amended complaint to allege adultery or to consolidate an action filed by him against appellee former wife alleging adultery, granted the former wife a divorce, and granted the former wife custody of the parties’ child, child support, spousal support, costs, and counsel fees. The appellate court held that:

(1) the former wife was not guilty of legal desertion in separating from the former husband after the institution of an action for divorce or during its pendency, despite the fact that she continued to live in the marital home for some time after she filed the divorce complaint; and

(2) the trial court’s refusal to allow the former husband to amend his complaint or to consolidate the adultery action was not an abuse of discretion where the adultery complaint was not made in good faith, but was merely an effort to avoid spousal support.
