The only condition for dissolution of a marriage through divorce, according to Article 56 § 1of the Family and Guardianship Code, is a complete and lasting breakdown of marital life.This condition is absolute because the law does not provide any exceptions to it.The breakdown of marital life belongs to the category of legal concepts for which it mustbe assumed from the outset that a strict statutory definition is not possible. The task ofdefining this concept falls to case law and legal literature. All attempts to define thisconcept start with defining the concept of shared marital life.
