Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ...the husband has abandoned the wife, although the abandonment may not have continued for one year, the length of time required to entitle her to a divorce for that specific cause, she may maintain an independent action for alimony. 2. SAME---The husband's right to a divorce upon the ground of the wife's lewdness is taken away by cohabitation after knowledge of the lewdness complained of. And where prior to the marriage the wife had been lewd and unchaste with the husband, the subsequent cohabitation with knowledge of that fact must be regarded as taking away the husband's right to a divorce upon the ground of the wife's lewdness prior to the marriage, whatever may have been her previous conduct or relation to other men. 8. SAME.--('oncealment by the wife at the time of the marriage of previous acts of lewdness can not be treated as fraud of that character entitling the husband to a divorce, as he had knowledge that there were reports affecting her character for chastity, and was not only free to investigate them, but was told by her father not to marry her if they turned out to be true. Besides, if the wife was so lewd as the husband's witnesses in this case testify, it is incredible he could have been ignorant of the fact. W. L. BROWN AND WM. H. HOLT FOR APPELLANT. 1. The allowance should have been based upon appellant's present condi-tion, and it is excessive. 2. The appellee was clearly entitled to no relief, and the appellant should have been granted a divorce. A condonation must be with knowledge of the guilt, and must be given without misrepresentation. The knowledge of the guilt must be distinctly proved. (Brown on Alimony and Divorce, pp. 31-2.)
