heart to assume their essential marital obligations have shown
indifference and hostility to conjugal life from the beginning of
marriage;
14. The perceived domineering personality of petitioner and the
philandering ways of respondent have rendered them both incapable
of compying with their mutual obligations of love, respect and
fidelity towards each other. Thus, both parties have shown their
failure to render mutual help and support to each one;
