The Impact of No-Fault Divorce Law Reform on Divorce in American States
Wright, Gerald C., Jr.; Stetson, Dorothy M.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, 40, 3, 575-80, Aug 78

Exceptions, such as California and Florida, should be tested with rival hypotheses pertinent to their special socioeconomic characteristics. (Author)
