Donald v. Donald
Facts:

            Plaintiff husband sought review of the judgment of the Circuit Court of Virginia Beach (Virginia), which awarded a divorce a vinculo martimonii and directed him to pay defendant wife spousal support, claiming that, pursuant to Va. Code Ann. § 20-107.1, the wife could not be awarded spousal support due to her post-separation adultery.

Holdings:

            The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • Va. Code Ann. § 20-107.1 authorizes the trial court to award spousal support subject to the provision that no permanent maintenance or support shall be awarded from a spouse if there exists in such spouse's favor a ground of divorce under the provisions of Va. Code Ann. §§ 20-91(1), (3), or (6) or § 20-95.
  • Recrimination in divorce law is the defense that the applicant has himself done what is a ground for divorce. It bars the plaintiff's suit founded on whatever cause, whether the defendant is guilty or not. If it be established that one spouse has been guilty of cruelty, or of desertion for a period insufficient to justify an absolute divorce, those offenses, for which merely a divorce a mensa et thoro may be granted, grave though they may be, are not sufficient to bar the right of the other spouse to a divorce from the bonds of matrimony if the statutory grounds for that relief be sufficiently proved. Further, a plea of recrimination with respect to any other ground of divorce shall not be a bar to either party obtaining a divorce on the ground of separation.
