In South Dakota, irreconcilable differences is the “no fault” reason for divorce. Irreconcilable differences means the parties agree that there are substantial reasons for not continuing the marriage and the marriage should be dissolved. As a rule, both you and your spouse must agree to use irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce. In other words, if your spouse doesn’t agree that you have irreconcilable differences, then the case becomes a contested divorce and you must file based on one of the other grounds for divorce.
