Circumstances for Divorce

Under what circumstances can/should a man divorce his wife? What does the Torah consider as a good reason?

This is a very serious issue best discussed with a competent, caring and sensible Rabbi. The Talmud (Gittin 90) gives various opinions but writes that when a couple divorces, even the altar in the Temple cries for them and it is considered a rebellion against the wife of his youth.
