What is Inappropriate Marital Conduct in Tennessee?

Inappropriate Marital Conduct is one of the grounds for divorce in Tennessee. Unless parties have a full upfront settlement agreement on all terms, when one party files for divorce, they have to allege at least one “ground” from the list of grounds found in the statute. However, this is the one that is most commonly used by attorneys, as it allows them to meet the statutorily required allegation of fault, but also does not require a recitation of private or personal details. Normally if a case settles prior to an actual trial occurring, the grounds for divorce are converted to irreconcilable differences only, and the allegations of fault become moot.
