How does a party argue condonation?

Three elements of are essential to condonation: knowledge, forgiveness, and revival. That is, the victim spouse must have knowledge of the grounds for divorce (adultery, for example) and despite this forgive the perpetrator spouse. The "revival" aspect refers to the fact that condonation can be removed, by ceasing to forgive, for example. If this is so, the grounds are said to be revived.
