Pagina 38 - What merely wounds the mental feelings is in few cases to be admitted, where they are not accompanied with bodily injury, either actual or menaced. Mere austerity of temper, petulance of manners, rudeness of language, a want of civil attention and accommodation, even occasional sallies of passion, if they do not threaten bodily harm, do not amount to legal cruelty...

In this case, as in many others, the happiness of some individuals must be sacrificed to the greater and more general good.
Pagina 40 - ... upon which the court has proceeded to a separation. This doctrine has been repeatedly applied by the court in the cases that have been cited.
