What is the test for an inquiry into a broken down marriage?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Andrade v. Andrade, 2012 ONSC 2777 (CanLII):

The inquiry is on an objective basis. For example, in Czepa v. Czepa (1988), 16 R.F.L. (3d) 191 (H.C.J.), Killeen, L.J.S.C., stated at para 15: The quest for a valuation date is tied to that date when the marriage is irretrievably broken down and the resumption of cohabitation is not reasonably in the cards. This quest requires the trial judge to look at all the circumstances objectively.
