Your wife is not ready for a divorce and is not prepared for matrimonial reconciliation – Is she entitled to alimony?

In such a case it has been held that a demand for the payment of alimony and a refusal to live together are not compatible.

Your wife’s position shows that she wants to receive the rights arising from the matrimonial bond (alimony), but is not prepared to comply with the basic duty of the matrimonial bond, namely, cohabitation. It has been held that such a position lacks good faith and amounts to unjust enrichment.
