The Plaintiff, Thomas M. Wannamaker, would show unto this Honorable Court as follows:

  1. The Plaintiff is a citizen and resident of the County of Richland, State of South Carolina, and has been such for a period of more than one year prior to the commencement of this action. The Defendant’s last known address is in Fairfield County, State of South Carolina. The parties last lived together as husband and wife in Lexington County.

  4. The parties separated on August 30, 2002 and have lived separate and apart since that date.
  5. This Court has subject matter and personal jurisdiction in this case, and venue is proper in this county.
