Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 20-91(A)(6) authorizes a divorce from the bond of matrimony on the ground of cruelty. The misconduct that will form a good ground for divorce must be very serious and such as amounts to extreme cruelty, entirely subversive of the family relations rendering the association intolerable. The long-established rule is that the cruelty that authorizes a divorce is anything that tends to bodily harm and thus renders cohabitation unsafe. Moreover, a single act of physical cruelty will constitute grounds for divorce if it is so severe and atrocious as to endanger life or it indicates an intention to do serious bodily harm. Before a spouse may obtain a divorce, he or she must prove the grounds therefor and no complaint for divorce shall be defaulted, taken for confessed, or granted upon the pleadings or upon uncorroborated testimony.
