Consistory Court of London – Practice–Condonation–Delay –As a general rule, the Court will always accede to an application to examine witnesses viva voce; and where such application is intended for the whole cause, the pleadings must be concluded before any of the witnesses are examined. Condonation, or the renewal of conjugal intercourse, requires strict proof. In matrimonial causes there are few reasons for delay.
