A divorce just takes one party to want to get a divorce in most states. States like Illinois and New York both require the “ground” that the marriage is irretrievably broken. Similarly, it only takes one party to state under oath that the marriage is irretrievably broken. It doesn’t mean you two aren’t having sex or aren’t living together – the law doesn’t require physical separation.
