There are many reasons that a couple may decide to end their marriage. In some cases, the spouses may disagree on financial issues or parenting strategies. In others, one partner may be guilty of negative or destructive behavior such as mental or physical cruelty or infidelity. No matter what drives a married couple apart, however, the state of Illinois will only grant a divorce on the no-fault grounds of irreconcilable differences.
When the most couples enter into a marriage, they do so with the intention of spending their lives together. Both partners are happy, in love, and looking forward to a future full of possibilities and memories to be made. While newlyweds may be aware that a significant number of marriages end in divorce, the very idea of it is easily dismissed. They can rationalize divorce as something that happens to other people and insist that they love each other too much to ever go through it.
