Ontario is the only Province in Canada that has jurisdiction to grant you a divorce. The Divorce Act requires residence in any particular Province for at least a year immediately preceding the filing of the divorce.
Nowhere in the UK has jurisdiction to grant you a divorce.
The grounds here are:
Separation of at least one year;
The party not filing has committed adultery; or
The party not filing has treated the other with either mental or physical cruelty.
One doesn't have to have been separated for a year at the time the Action is filed (one could separate in the morning and file in the afternoon), but one will not be able to apply for a Divorce Judgment until the one year anniversary has passed. Like in England and Wales, it is possible to be separated but living in the same house.
Don't argue with an idiot - they will drag you down to their level and will beat you with experience!
