 Answers for all your queries will depend on what grounds did X and Y take divorce

X is a professional husband 10 years older than wife Y . Wife wants to seperate. since both are NRIs it may be difficult to find jobs for both of them back home when they return. Wife may have 10 working years .Grounds could be mutual consent. Will situation be different if it is some other grounds?
