Yes, North Carolina, like most states, is a no-fault divorce state. This means that neither you nor your spouse is required to prove that the other is “at fault” in order to be granted a divorce. Though they may be relevant to other domestic law issues, factors such as infidelity, cruelty, or abandonment are not necessary to receive a divorce in North Carolina. Rather, North Carolina allows divorces in two circumstances: 1) Separation for at least one year; or 2) Incurable insanity (which is almost never used any more).
