English Matrimonial law.
--A case of some interest with relation to the marriage law was heard recently before Vice Chancellor Sir R. Kindersley
, in London
A man and woman residing in England
were married according to English law. They never lived together.
The lady went to Scotland
, and, in consequence of an arrangement between the parties, the husband went to Scotland
too, resided there for forty days, and then they were divorced by the Scotch law. The lady married again and had children, and the question now was whether the children, as legitimate, could inherit certain property left to the legitimate children of the lady.
The Vice Chancellor
held that a foreign court could not dissolve an English marriage, that the divorce was null, the children illegitimate, and the property must go to other parties.
