noncohabitation order

An order made by magistrates relieving a wife of the duty of living with her husband. Since 1978 noncohabitation orders have been abolished, but orders made before 1978 may still be of relevance as evidence in divorce proceedings. As long as a noncohabitation order is in force a wife cannot be guilty of desertion.
