    A full pardon is something you get for free, divorce is expensive.

      Good point, LOL!

    I think the initial separation is like the parole and the final divorce is the pardon.

    Depends on if there is alimony involved or kids. If there is either one, then it is parole because you are still linked to the ex-spouse. 
    If neither, then you are free to go...full pardon. This post was edited by my2cents at December 7, 2017 4:56 AM MST

    Is there alimony?  Then its parole.

    Drat.  I just read My 2.  How did she manage to copy from me when she got here first?  Weird talent, that one. This post was edited by OUR HOUSE IS NOW BLUE at December 8, 2017 3:18 AM MST
