Unless you agree otherwise you do not waive any grounds for divorce. Once an agreement is reached on all issues in a divorce, however, there is usually no reason to proceed on fault grounds, and most people are content to use no fault grounds (one year separation).See question

My husband and I were married in DC but we live in Maryland. Can I file for divorce in DC since we have a DC marriage license or do I have to file in Maryland?
You file for divorce where you live, not where you were married. But Maryland has a one year residency requirement unless the grounds for divorce occurred in Maryland. DC has a six month residency requirement. So it is not unheard of for some Maryland residents to move to DC to get divorced faster.See question

I am filling for divorce in Maryland but we both cannot afford to live on our own during the seperation period, can we both live in our home if we make part of the home a seperate living area or an apartment until we sell the house?
If you are filing for divorce under the no-fault grounds of one year voluntary or two year's involuntary separation, Maryland law requires that you reside under "separate roofs", that is not in the same house.
However, you can live in the same house and file for divorce under fault grounds, which include desertion, cruelty and adultery.
And, most importantly, you can live in the same house with a separation agreement, which can give you almost everything a divorce gives you, except the right tor remarry.See question

There is always a possibility. In determining alimony, duration of the marriage is one of several factors the judge must consider, as well as health and income earning abilities of the parties.
