UK Divorce - King's Proctor Intervention

Hello,

In researching a family rumour of bigamy, I found a newspaper article that states: "in July, 1935, [Albert] Knight actually got decree of divorce against his wife at Winchester Assizes. Application had to be made for the decree to be made absolute after six months, but the King's Proctor intervened on account of some misconduct by the pursuer on a former occasion and the decree was not made absolute."

All rather intriguing! Albert remarried without receiving the decree absolute, and was tried for bigamy. I was wondering if there's any way of finding out what his misconduct might have been, and why this led to such an intervention. Were such events unusual?

Thanks,

Andy
