The other person frequently stays out overnight. Is this grounds for divorce?

Just because the other person frequently stays out does not immediately become grounds for divorce.
However, for example, if your spouse drinks alcohol and stays out 2-3 times a week,
Even though I wrote a memorandum to never stay out again, I didn't keep this promise.
What if, by not doing so, the trust between the couple is damaged and the marriage relationship is broken down to the point where it is difficult to repair?

In this case, a divorce request can be made to the Family Court as it falls under the grounds for divorce under Article 840, Paragraph 6 of the Civil Act.
In the above case, the court acknowledged the responsibility for the breakdown of the marriage to the husband who frequently stayed out at home and neglected his home.
Ultimately, it accepted her wife's divorce petition and ruled that her husband should pay 20 million won in alimony for her wife.
