husbaod defendant committed acts or
adultery with the housemaid in his wife's

months; the result of which was the preg

werecommitted during the absence of the

Held, That the foregoing facts did not
authorize anv kind of a divorce. The
court (annot nndertiike to define with any
precision the course of conduct which will
amount to legal cruelty or to "indignities
within the mean in 2 of the Act of
j - u
Assembly. But it may confidently be
said that the indignity, whatever may be
its form or nature, must be such as may be
expected seriously to annoy a icoman of
Ordinary good sense and temper. It must
be repeated or continued in so that it may
appear to have been done willfully and
iutentionallyt or at least conmonshj, by
the husband to the annoyance of the wife.
He must liave rensou to believe thathis
act or course of conduct will greatly and
naturally anupy his wife, and must perr
sist iu it regardles4 of such annoyances.
This Court dismisses from consideration
the fact that the acts were committed in
the bed-room in which the Juland and
wife slept when she vi a? at home, m ber
ing a mere poetic and fanciful and not a
real aggravation, inasmuch as it was nof,
known to the wife until after the actjon
was brought. The husband's couducf was
not consciously or willfully to tjo ajnoy-

never expected her to know of them. The
indignities to her feeling were not willful
on his part but accidental, resulting from
her inquiries, which were not anticipated
