    Perhaps it is a form of lawsuit, but it is a lawsuit to decide if one can do the bolded section. It's purpose is not to recover damages, per se, but that can be an aspect of a divorce. Divorce is to terminate teh amrriage, which is an obligation to the other party.


    Terminating the marriage = breach of marriage license.


    Breach = Failure to live up to obligations

    Marriage = living together as one for life

    License = Permission to do something.


    The state granted permission to remain together as man and wife for life. The divorce allows you to not live up to that obligation. The cause of divorce is an excuse for the breach of license. It can JUSTIFY that breach of license.

    That there is justification for a failure to live up to an obligation does not mean that it is not a failure to live up to the obligation.

    Variations to the standard contract exist.

    My point was that divorce itself is not a breach of the license.

    "Divorce" is not grounds for divorce, which is what you are arguing.

    There are specific actions which breach the license, but divorce itself is not one such breach.

    How does anything in your post counter this?

    The obligation is to remain married "till death do you part". Your point is erroneous because the obligation still exists, even in the presence of adultery. It is not until the termination of the marriage occurs that the obligation itself is not lived up to.

    The obligation to remain married for life is terminated by divorce, thus the license is breached because it is at this point, and at this point ONLY that the obligation is not lived up to.

    The obligation is not: "till death or infidelity do you part". Thus, the only way to fial to live up to the obligation is to not remain together until death, i.e. divorce.

    Therefore, the only way breach to breach the license is by failing to live up to the license, i.e. to not remain married till death, and that can only be done through divorce.

    Grounds for divorce means: Justification for breaching the marriage license. I never argued anything remotely close to your assertion.

    You just did though You just did it again


    Divorce itself is not a breach of the marriage license.

    Look, I can give you the actual list of things that breach the marriage licince in SD:

    South Dakota Codified Laws
    25-4-2. Grounds for divorce. Divorces may be granted for any of the following causes:
    (1) Adultery;
    (2) Extreme cruelty;
    (3) Willful desertion;
    (4) Willful neglect;
    (5) Habitual intemperance;
    (6) Conviction of felony;
    (7) Irreconcilable differences.
    That is a complete and exahstive list of all inftractions which breach the licince. Where do you see "divorce" on that list?
