Holdings:

            The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • A divorce could be granted on the grounds of desertion where the parties remained under the same roof. The willful withdrawal of the privilege of sexual intercourse, without just cause or excuse, constitutes willful desertion, within the meaning of such statute on the subject as that in Virginia , when such withdrawal is accompanied, as in the cause before us, with such willful breach and neglect of other marital duties as to practically destroy home life in every true sense, and to render the marriage state well nigh intolerable and impossible to be endured. Such conduct, on the part either of husband or wife, is considered to be a general withdrawal from the duties of the marital relationship; and, if willfully done, without just cause or excuse, this, by the great weight of authority, constitutes willful desertion.
  • A showing of mere cessation of intercourse, absent evidence of permanent and unexcused refusal, is insufficient to establish cruelty or desertion as a grounds of divorce.
