Singapore Divorce Lawyer - Lam & Co Blog

For most people, divorce is a rare and scary thing. You simply do not have any previous experience with it and there are many horror stories you have heard from your friends. Lam & Co.'s expert divorce lawyers are focused on sharing information with you to assist you as much as possible in making painless and correct decisions.

Q: WHAT IS UNREASONABLE BEHAVIOUR? WHAT ISN'T? A: DIRECT FROM A SINGAPORE DIVORCE LAWYER

 If you have been married for more than 3 years and you now wish to divorce your spouse, Unreasonable Behaviour is one of the facts that can support your application. But what is Unreasonable Behaviour?

First of all, the Women's Charter says:

In the context of divorce, the following behaviour is not Unreasonable Behaviour:
  • pure incompatibility in characters. This means that if the only issue in your marriage is that your character and your spouse's character are not compatible, this will not be accepted. Ie, you did nothing wrong and your spouse did nothing wrong and you two cannot get along simply because your characters are different -- this will not work. This is not the type of Unresaonable Behaviour that the Court can accept.
  • pure incompatibility in lifestyles. The above also applies to different lifestyles. If the only issue in your marriage is that your character and your spouse's lifestyles are not compatible, this will not be accepted. Again, you did nothing wrong and your spouse did nothing wrong and you two cannot get along simply because your characters are different -- this will not work.
Some examples will make the situation even clearer.
For example, you and your spouse are at home and the both of you do not wish to speak to each other. By itself, this is not Unreasonable Behaviour.
Another example, you ask your spouse how his (or her) day was and he (or she) ignores you and does not reply. A pattern of such behaviour can be Unreasonable Behaviour.
For example, you and your spouse are both not interested in being intimate with each other. Again, by itself, this is not Unreasonable Behaviour.
Another example would be where you keep approaching your spouse with the intention of being intimate but each time, your spouse gives the same excuse, I have a headache, I have a headache. This can be Unreasonable Behaviour.
