Taylor v. Taylor

Facts:

The husband sued the wife for a divorce a vinculo matrimonii for the willful desertion and abandonment by her of him for more than three years. The circuit court refused a divorce. The court found that 28 years before the husband sued for a divorce, the wife abandoned the marital home and removed with their children to the State of Iowa, where they resided ever since. The court also found that witnesses, who were near neighbors to and had known the parties for many years, testified under the oath of laws that the husband was a hard-working, industrious man, and a kind and provident husband and father, who supplied all the needs of his family. They also testified as to the wife’s incontinency and her willful desertion and abandonment of the husband as alleged. Finding that the uncontradicted evidence sustained the allegations of the bill of willful desertion and abandonment of the husband by the wife for more than three years, the court held that he was entitled to an absolute divorce.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Temporary absence from the usual place of abode at the time of service by posting will not invalidate the effectiveness of that service. Abandonment of a place of residence as one’s usual place of abode, however, will make null any service of process which was by posting at that place subsequent to the abandonment.
  • While the defendant does not have to show a “good faith” abandonment of the particular residence as his usual place of abode, it is necessary that he demonstrate an actual abandonment of it as such. Abandonment is a matter of intent. As no means has yet been devised to peer directly into the human mind whereby discovery of an intent there may be had, intent is often revealed by evidence of the intended’s acts. His acts are not alone evidence of intent, however, for his testimony may be significant, though likely in large part self-serving.
