Marriage, separation and divorce have affected the lives of many of our ancestors and their descendants. What may have started out as a dream of love and happiness may have turned into a nightmare of arguments, fights, separation, divorce or desertion. Finding records of these events, both happy and sad, are the challenge of the genealogist.
