Weird degrees of separation

Find out about divorce laws in different countries across the world and how it affects couples there

Divorce after three marriages: Kentucky allows a maximum of three marriages to the same person. For those spouses who just can't make up their mind, moving states might have to be their last resort if they are considering opting for fourth time lucky. Otherwise, just marry a different person.

Mistakenly married: The Delaware Divorce and Annulment Act allows for a marriage to be annulled if "One or both parties entered into the marriage as a jest or dare."

Separate addresses for divorce: Divorce law is often so complex to maneuver that among the most bizarre things that may be encountered is simplicity. The traditional Eskimo societies have decided to embark on this most unusual of paths: to divorce they only need to begin living apart. This divorce law is so simple, it doesn't even require a lawyer.

Coffee or divorce? In Saudi Arabia, a wife is entitled to divorce her husband if he does not supply her with fresh coffee.

Providing after divorce: Tennessee marriage law states that a husband may divorce his wife if he leaves her with "10 pounds of dried beans, 5 pounds of dried apples, a side of meat, and ample yarn with which to knit herself stockings for a year." This gives new meaning to the term providing for your ex-spouse.

Clinical trouble: In Mississippi, proving idiocy on the part of a spouse is reasonable grounds for divorce. Of course the idiocy claimed must be more clinical than general.

Elope to end the marriage: Australian aboriginal women have three options when it comes to divorce. They can opt for the standard route, which means convincing their husband to divorce them. If that fails, they might be more successful in persuading their husbands to give them away. Odd as that sounds, option number three allows them to elope, thus ending the old marriage by beginning a new one.
