Impotency is almost never pleaded as a grounds for divorce in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It should be noted that impotency is the"inability to have sexual intercourse" as opposed to "sterility" which is the inability to reproduce.
Either or both spouses may be impotent if unable to have intercourse.
As in other fault based grounds, it is usually wise to plead an irretrievable breakdown as an alternate grounds for divorce.
