In this follow-up to the bestselling Marriage Law for Genealogists, Rebecca Probert explains marital breakdown, separation, divorce, bigamy, bereavement and remarriage from the 1600s through to the late twentieth century. From the evidential requirements of the divorce courts through to the testimonies of convicted bigamists, and from men who married their late wife's sister through to couples who went through more than one wedding ceremony together, this book examines law and social custom from every angle. Rebecca Probert is the leading authority on the history of marriage law and practice in England and Wales. She holds a chair in family law at the University of Warwick and regularly appears on TV and radio.
