What are Grounds for Divorce in Texas?

In Texas a divorce may be granted without a determination of fault if the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities that destroys the legitimate ends of the marital relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.  A divorce may also be granted on grounds of cruelty, adultery, conviction of a felony, abandonment, living apart, or confinement in a mental hospital. (Texas Family Code Title 1 Subtitle C Chapter 6 Subchapter A Section 6.001)
