After two months of mar- riage, .the new Mrs. B left Mr. B's home. Mr. B valed for a divorce nd Mrs. B, in the same action, asked the court to award her separate maintenance from Mr. B. The ;trial court found t;hat although Mr. B w:aa entitled to divorce .decree, Mrs. B was not entitled to separa,te maln.tenance because she left the home without just cause or provocation. Mrs. B appealed to ,the Supreme Co,urt of the Slate of Washing- ton, contending tha.t the trial court made a mistake w.hen it refused to allow her request for separate maintenance. The Supreme Court hleId that the trial court had not made a rots.take. The court said that in order to be .entitled to separate maintenance, a wife must how (a) that her h,usband abandoned her without Just cause, or that she was compelled to live apart from him because of conduct on his part w'btctL in law, consti- tuted abandonment; and (b) ,that, having t,he a-bility to sup- port her, Jhe neglected or re- fused to do so. Here, the court r,uled, the evidence of the wife did not meet this test because she left her husband's :home with- out jtst eanse Or provocation.
