Can I divorce my husband/wife if they are cheating? Is this a common reason for divorce?

Prior to the law in England and Wales moving to a no-fault divorce system, infidelity was one of the more common reasons given for getting divorced.

There is only one ground for divorce, and this is the “irretrievable breakdown of the marriage”.
