JUDGMENT

B. Renaud J

 

On 9th April, 2005 the Petitioner Desire Larue of Victoria, Mahe Seychelles, was married to the Respondent Natalie Larue born Esparon also of Victoria, Mahe, Seychelles.

 

After their marriage the parties lived and co-habited in Manchester, England before returning to Seychelles.

 

The Petitioner is domiciled in Seychelles and has been habitually resident in Seychelles for at least one year to the date of filing this Petition. The Respondent resides at St. Louis, Mahe, Seychelles. Both parties are Seychellois nationals.

 

There are no children born of this marriage.

 

There have been no previous proceedings in any Court of Seychelles in relation to this marriage.

 

The Petitioner averred that the marriage has irretrievably broken down on the ground that the Petitioner and the Respondent have lived separate and apart for a continuous period of over one year immediately preceding the presentation of this Petition. All their attempts at reconciliation have not proved successful and there is now no possibility of reconciliation. The Respondent consented to the grant of the divorce.

 

On the basis of the uncontroverted evidence of the Petitioner, it is my judgment that the marriage of the parties has broken down irretrievably and that there is now no possibility of reconciliation.

 

In the circumstances, I hereby dissolved the said marriage and grant a conditional order of divorce to be made absolute six weeks from today upon the application of the Petitioner.
