Yes. The Scandals book is all about that. The “any cause” divorce was just one chapter of about 30 as I recall.
chessman,

In 1975 in Australia, the Labor government led by Prime Minister Gough Whitlam introduced no-fault divorce. See: Gough Whitlam's no-fault divorce policy a milestone - The Australian

What has been the result?

Divorce in Australia source data

Source data for Family Facts & Figures: Divorce in Australia

Divorce rates



In 1970 there were 12,198 divorces, i.e. 1.0 divorce rate

After the 1975 no-fault legislation, divorces sky-rocketed in 1976 to a rate of 4.6 with 63,230 divorces. In 2013 that rate was 2.1, representing 47,638 divorces.

Another concern here is:
AIFS' [Australian Institute of Family Studies] Director, Professor Alan Hayes said that the proportion of divorces ending after twenty years had increased from 13% in 1990 to 28% in 2011 (Rate of divorce after 20 years of marriage doubles, Sunshine Coast Daily, 7th May 2013).​
