You Can Get Un-Married But You Can't Get Un-Divorced

This is a pretty good indicator of where we are, isn't it?

The AP:

The state's Supreme Court this month upheld a lower court ruling refusing to vacate a New Castle couple's 2014 divorce after 24 years of marriage.

Terrie Harmon and her ex-husband, Thomas McCarron, argued on appeal that their divorce decree was erroneous because they mended fences and are a couple once more. But the justices, in a unanimous ruling issued Dec. 2, said the law specifically allows them to grant divorces - not undo them.

Courts in some states - including Illinois, Nebraska, Mississippi, Arkansas, Maryland and Kentucky - will vacate divorces within a certain time frame or under certain circumstances, at the parties' request. Others - including New York and South Dakota - maintain they, like New Hampshire, have no statutory authority to undo a divorce.
