In DC:
A divorce will be granted by the court on the following grounds:

No-Fault:
(1) Mutual voluntary separation without cohabitation for 6 months; (2) living separate and apart without cohabitation for 1 year. "Living separate and apart" may be accomplished under the same roof, if the spouses do not share bed or food.

Fault:
(1) Mutual voluntary separation without cohabitation for 6 months and (2) living separate and apart without cohabitation for 1 year are the only grounds for divorce in Washington D.C. (District of Columbia Code - Title 16 - Chapter 9 - Sections: 904, 905, 906)

Infidelity is a frequent cause of divorce, but legally it does not have any particular effect under the DC divorce law. It does in some States. For example, adultery is grounds for divorce in Maryland, see

I hope this information is helpful.
