Divorce in Worcester County, Massachusetts, 1863-1880.
Mulligan, William H., Jr.
Journal of Family Issues, v1 n3 p357-77 Sep 1980
This historical study of divorce practice has only recently begun. Using Worcester County, Massachusetts as a test case, a preliminary hypothesis that explains the increasing frequency of divorce in terms of basic changes of American life, particularly the increased economic independence of women brought about by industrialization, is presented.
