Divorce law in Galveston, Texas, circa 1906

I am based in the UK and am writing an essay which includes biographical notes about a couple who were divorced by the Galveston District Court in Texas in 1906, after less than a year of marriage. Unfortunately the divorce decree contains no details as to the reasons why the female petitioned for divorce. I am therefore keen to locate details about the relevant divorce laws which governed divorce in Texas (or specifically in Galveston County), to see if they provide a list of valid reasons for petitioning for divorce. Any advice on where I might be able to locate this would be very much appreciated.
