Here is the serious subject of divorce treated with a humourous insight and with a cast of marvelous character parts. The author's handling of the theme not only gives excellent entertainment with its balance of laughter and pathos, but also provokes thoughtful consideration and discussion. 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.
