Interesting and informative read on the history and evolution  of divorce in America..including this : During the 1950s, while the family courts were being established, divorcing couples were maneuvering through the existing legal system for divorce. But by the late 1950s, over 95 percent of divorces were uncontested. So, instead of holding hearings to evaluate evidence for substantiating grounds or to require counseling and educational programs, judges were placed in a position of ratifying divorce agreements made by couples prior to their court appearances

Filed under: Uncategorized — familyinnocence @ 8:45 pm

Jan 5 1643 :   In the first record of a legal divorce in the American colonies, Anne Clarke of the Massachusetts Bay Colony is granted a divorce from her absent and adulterous husband, Denis Clarke, by the Quarter Court of Boston, Massachusetts. In a signed and sealed affidavit presented to John Winthrop Jr., the son of the colony’s founder, Denis Clarke admitted to abandoning his wife, with whom he had two children, for another woman, with whom he had another two children. He also stated his refusal to return to his original wife, thus giving the Puritan court no option but to punish Clarke and grant a divorce to his wife, Anne. The Quarter Court’s final decision read: “Anne Clarke, beeing deserted by Denis Clarke hir husband, and hee refusing to accompany with hir, she is graunted to bee divorced.”

‘In December 1999, the Missouri Court of Appeals upheld Judge Randolph Puchta’s decision to prevent Hicks, a custodial parent, from moving with her children 95 miles to her new husband’s home in Illinois.’….

Rover’s commentary : although I am sure there is sometimes  truth in the accusations of controlling ex husbands (why can’t just say ex spouses?)(and off course they wave the domestic violence flag) but..overall I get an air of a : men are all bad …and b: mom should be in control  post divorce…uh sorry..both are parents and each should have access to the children..if you find luv elsewhere..they better be willing to relocate..rarely do the children of divorce benefit from another upheaval or move by either parent..period…NO MORE CHILD STEALING
