A Rational Solution for an Emotional Problem

divorce-remarriageFor as long as marriage has existed, divorce has always been a part of it. Despite popular conceptions of divorce as a modern affliction, the ancient Romans had a thriving divorce rate, with the more affluent and rich Romans (especially in the later imperial period) frequently divorcing their mates in order to improve their social standing or purely as a political move, so they could marry the daughters and sisters of their allies or adversaries.

The fact remains that divorce is a rational and legal mechanism that provides a lawful conclusion to a marriage, although it may sound and perverse to us today. It is an attempt to impose a rational solution on what is essentially an emotional decision by putting a married couple through a set structure of events and procedures. The most important aspect of divorce is this distinction between the rational and the emotional.
