Divorce, or the dissolution of marriage, is the termination of a marital union. It includes the canceling and/or reorganizing of the legal duties and responsibilities of marriage, thus dissolving the bonds of matrimony between a married couple under the rule of law of the particular country and/or state. Limited divorces result in termination of the right to cohabitate but the court refrains from officially dissolving the marriage. Some states permit conversion divorce which transforms a legal separation into a legal divorce after a prescribed period of time. Many states enacted no-fault divorce statues which do not require showing spousal misconduct. There are several other types of divorce, with laws varying by state.
