In SC, spouses are allowed to end their marriages if they meet any 1 of the following 4 at fault reasons: adultery, physical cruelty, habitual drunkenness (alcohol or drugs) or desertion. If you want a divorce but cannot meet those requirements, you may apply for a no-fault divorce but only after living separately and apart from your spouse for a year.
