Question: In Illinois, wanting a divorce has not always been a guarantee of getting one. Sometimes judges denied divorces if the grounds for them did not meet up to the statutes —at least until “irreconcilable differences” was introduced as grounds for a divorce, a catch-all designate. Can you name the year that “irreconcilable differences” became a legal means in Illinois? (1) 1975; (2) 1943; (3) 1968; (4) 1988.
Answer: Before (4) 1988 when “irreconcilable differences” was officially introduced as grounds for it, a request for a divorce in Illinois was not necessarily a guarantee you’d get one. That’s according to state statutes.
