2310.
  

Dissolution of the marriage or legal separation of the parties may be based on either of the following grounds, which shall be pleaded generally:

(a) Irreconcilable differences, which have caused the irremediable breakdown of the marriage.

(Enacted by Stats. 1992, Ch. 162, Sec. 10. Operative January 1, 1994.)

2311.
  

Irreconcilable differences are those grounds which are determined by the court to be substantial reasons for not continuing the marriage and which make it appear that the marriage should be dissolved.

(Enacted by Stats. 1992, Ch. 162, Sec. 10. Operative January 1, 1994.)

2312.
  

A marriage may be dissolved on the grounds of incurable insanity only upon proof, including competent medical or psychiatric testimony, that the insane spouse was at the time the petition was filed, and remains, incurably insane.

(Enacted by Stats. 1992, Ch. 162, Sec. 10. Operative January 1, 1994.)

2313.
  

No dissolution of marriage granted on the ground of incurable insanity relieves a spouse from any obligation imposed by law as a result of the marriage for the support of the spouse who is incurably insane, and the court may make such order for support, or require a bond therefor, as the circumstances require.

(Enacted by Stats. 1992, Ch. 162, Sec. 10. Operative January 1, 1994.)
