Divorce has been around a long time.
I read in The Writer’s Almanac on Jan. 5 that it was the anniversary of the first legal divorce granted in America.
It was issued on Jan. 5, 1643 in the Massachusetts Bay Colony to a woman named Anne Clarke, whose husband left her and their two kids to go off with another woman. Some Puritans weren’t all that pure, I guess.
