Divorce law of California.

--In a recent case the Supreme Court of California have decided that there is no authority in the Court to impose any restraint upon a second marriage where the dissolution from the bonds of matrimony is adjudged. With the dissolution the obligations arising from the marriage are completely discharged, and the parties stand in the same position as though such marriage had never been contracted. The cases where restraint upon a second marriage is permitted have arisen upon express statutes authorizing its imposition upon the guilty party.
