STRANGE DIVORCE LAWS

Do you know that? --

In Kentucky It is illegal to marry the same person four times.

In Wichita, Kansas a man’s mistreatment of his mother-in-law is not grounds for a divorce.
In Delaware, a marriage can be annulled if it was entered into on a dare.

Under the “Alienation of Affection” laws of New Mexico and Mississippi, a scorned spouse can sue his or her former spouse’s lover for damages.
In England, where a couple must have legal grounds for a divorce:

(1)  A man filed for divorce based on the fact that he was fed up with his wife making tuna for dinner;

(2)  A woman obtained a divorce because her husband insisted that she dress like a Klingon from Star Trek; and

(3)  A man sued for divorce, accusing his wife of tampering with the TV antennae and throwing away his cold cuts. 


Thank goodness that Arizona has “No-Fault Divorce!”
