    Default 'Easy' Divorce during WW2

    Somewhere, sometime I read about serving soldiers,sailors and airmen, getting easy divorces from adulterous wives while they were away from England fighting. I have a vague recollection that it was called a "pay-packet divorce" or something like that.

    I can't find anything on this, but I really hope I'm not dreaming.

    Can somebody please help?

    Can't see that happening. How would that help the war effort? How would you prove grounds if you were out of the country? There was a peak in divorces after the war. Could that be what you're thinking of?
