This is an appeal from a decree overruling a demurrer. The complainant seeks a divorce under § 22, Title 34, Code 1940, as amended.
The pertinent provisions of § 22, Title 34, as amended, read:
The only question for decision in this cause is whether the allegations of the bill are sufficient, against the demurrer interposed, to state a ground for divorce under the statute.
The pertinent allegations of the bill are as follows:
While these allegations are about as meager as they could be, we are of the opinion that they are sufficient under our holding in Campbell v. Campbell, 252 Ala. 487, 41 So.2d 185, as against the demurrer interposed.
However, if the evidence shows no more than a mere empty verbal threat to injure the complainant, a decree of divorce should not be entered. Campbell v. Campbell, supra; Harris v. Harris, 256 Ala. 192, 54 So.2d 291; Bailey v. Bailey, 237 Ala. 525, 187 So. 453.
The decree is affirmed.
LIVINGSTON, C. J., and STAKELY and MERRILL, JJ., concur.
