The legal basis for divorce in California is only "irreconcilable differences". Neither party has to prove that the other is at fault, or was "unfaithful". There are many ways a couple can go about a dissolution of marriage. There might be full scale litigation, with a Court Trial. Other people choose meditation as a less expensive and less combative way to end a marriage. Still other couples choose "Collaborative" as a way to proceed. Consultation with an experienced Family Law attorney is the best way to understand the alternatives.
