ISBN: 9780573703812

Here is the serious subject of divorce treated with a humourous insight and with a cast of marvelous character parts. Through the marital experiences of the several women in this courtroom waiting-room, we can see their causes for divorce: selfishness, misunderstanding, the desire for luxuries have, in many cases, overshadowed the basic principles for a happy marriage. The mere granting of a divorce may give spiteful satisfaction to one of the parties, but it can also be a ticket to a future of loneliness.
