    What are grounds for divorce? You mentioned in the first call that the caller did not have grounds for divorce. I have been told by a counselor that I am married to a narcassist he has been verbally abusive, he has anger management, is manipulative, doesn’t trust me, and very moody. I have been told that I enable him, and am working on stopping this. We did seperate and he promised me he would change and went to counseling and demonstrated that he understood my issues and that he was not treating me like God wanted him to treat his wife. I moved back home and within 6 months he is going back to his old ways. What are grounds for divorce?
