When two people get divorced in Texas, both spouses generally have their own idea regarding whose fault the breakup was. In some cases, though, spouses can agree on where the fault lies in a divorce, whether it is with one spouse, both spouses or no one at all. Other times, fault in a divorce is contested, with each party claiming the other was at fault. What many don't realize is that fault may be related later on to property division and each spouse's propensity for protecting assets.
The divorce process often begins by one spouse officially filing for divorce. In general, at least one ground for divorce must be named; this is often "insupportability of the marriage." A marriage is generally no longer supportable when there is excessive discord between partners, unsustainable incompatibility and no realistic hope that reconciliation will take place. This ground can also be claimed if spouses have been living separately for three or more years.
