Peter's divorce

When two young people get married, the possibilities for success are endless, so are the failures. But when two people in their forties get married you might think the outcome would be more guaranteed, they've had time to gather wisdom. Peter, a farmer and a farmer's son, married Margaret, a townie photographer.

Read what his explanation to the court was after his wife left him. She said the place was unhealthy but she was probably just bored silly. Ah, life in the records! National Archives have the early divorce papers.
