Victorian Law: Divorce Act geared towards women

Hey. :)

For a story I'm writing, I'm trying to find out what year the British Parliament passed a divorce act stating that women could divorce their husbands if they could prove adultrey, along with proof of bigamy, or incest, or...something else? I believe it was somewhere between the 1880s or 1890s (but I could be wildly off). I've tried searching for it, but as I can't remember the year or title of the Act, I'm not coming up with much, I'm afraid.

Uh, help? Please?
