    Probably he looked after the house and kids as well.... OP didn't say anything about that.

    It's interesting, actually, regardless of gender this can be the case for the husband too. A friend recently went through a bad time with her hubby and thought about divorce. Hubby is fairly low income, having relocated to be with her, and retooled into a job with low salary. As the sole breadwinner (well she provides all living expenses, medical, holidays, you name it, he just kept his pay as his own pocket money), she was told that he could go for quite a lot of her accumulated wealth and she would be expected to provide maintenance to keep him in the 'style to which he has become accustomed'. Luckily they don't have kids so the separation will affect only themselves, but because of the financial impact, she has pulled back from proceeding with formalities.

    She was also told that while she can prove infidelity and process her divorce based on that, it very much depends on the judge whether that is taken into account when establishing 'blame' and awarding settlement.

    Yes that was pretty much my thinking in saying she should not divorce. But certainly move out.

    Most of her assets are not in Hong Kong and all the assets are under her name.

    She will go through with the divorce because she wants to move on.


    She has been trying to fix her marriage for close to 11 years there are no sign of him changing

    You don't have to refer to yourself in third person

    Christianity EVER so strictly speaking, doesn't condone/permit divorce.
