Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Recrimination in divorce law is the defense that the applicant has himself done what is a ground for divorce. It bars the plaintiff’s suit founded on whatever cause, whether the defendant is guilty or not. If it be established that one spouse has been guilty of cruelty, or of desertion for a period insufficient to justify an absolute divorce, those offenses, for which merely a divorce a mensa et thoro may be granted, grave though they may be, are not sufficient to bar the right of the other spouse to a divorce from the bonds of matrimony if the statutory grounds for that relief be sufficiently proved. Further, a plea of recrimination with respect to any other ground of divorce shall not be a bar to either party obtaining a divorce on the ground of separation. Va. Code Ann. § 20-91(9)(c) provides: A decree of divorce granted pursuant to this subdivision (9) shall in no way lessen any obligation any party may otherwise have to support the spouse unless such party shall prove that there exists in the favor of such party some other ground of divorce under this section or Va. Code Ann. § 20-95. The right to spousal support is not affected by an award of a no-fault divorce because neither party’s duty of support is affected absent a finding of fault on one party or the other. The word “fault” is used to mean grounds which legally may be used by one party as a basis for obtaining a divorce from the other party.
