Can defamation be used as ground for divorce?

Hi All,

 Am very new to this forum. Just want to know, could defamation be used as ground for applying divorce?, If yes, What evidence could be considered?.

 Situation is, My cousin's mother-in-law were telling to their relatives as cousin as psyco. Girl also supporting her mother even she know very well about his husband is good guy.

 Is above one considered as Defamation?, Would this be used as ground of divorce?

Defamation per se is not a ground for divorce under different marriage laws. However, if you prove that such defamation amounts to cruelty, you certainly can succeed. Such a cruelty must be by the spouse and not by in-laws.
