The legal ending of a marital contract between a man and a woman. A very common occurance in the US since the 1960s.
Often the result of either one or both partner's utter refusal to communicate with each other when something is wrong, and letting problems build, and seething under the surface until one of the parties, gives up and leaves. This leaves the "left" spouse in complete confusion because of the lack of communication, they did not see it coming. Becoming even more prevalent since the advent of internet personal sites and chat rooms. One partner after blindly thinking that the person he is chatting with actually resembles Angelina Jolie, decides that the grass is greener on the other side. The biggest victims of this epidemic are actually children who quickly develop a mistrust of the opposite sex.
