Divorce, Custody of Children, and Marriage

Recommended Posts

Carlos,

 

I'm glad you appreciate the links.

 

I didn't know that getting married in Costa Rica is hard and getting divorced in Costa Rica is even harder.

 

May no one on the forum (including myself) ever have to use the information on how to get a divorce in Costa Rica.

Hi Laura,

 

 

Yep. Well said!

 

There's a billboard that always gets my attention, it's on the side of the road as you head towards the Curridabat Muni building, coming from the highway from Cartago and Dos Cercas de Desampa:

 

"El divorcio no es la solución, es el problema!"

As if "just say no" ever worked.

 

My divorce was one of the best things that ever happened to me.

 

Better a divorce than a sham/unhappy marriage.

 

We are no longer living in the 1950's folks.

Miami David,

 

I know what a nasty divorce feels like.

 

Yes, a divorce is better than an unhappy marriage.

 

Thank goodness I missed the 1950s when it comes to marriage and divorce.

As Denny Crane put it on "Boston Legal" (Now, why are the good shows always canceled?): It is better to want something that you can't have than to have something you don't want.

 

I rest my case.

I agree with that saying 100%.

 

 

Laura this part of the Costa Rican law was reversed last year..It was called discrimination... the reason behind it originally was that they wanted to make sure the woman was not pregant and the new guy got stuck... so now with DNA testing etc... they repealed the law....Here is what it used to say..

 

"According to Costa Rica marriage customs, a woman must wait 300 days from wither the death of her husband or the date of the divorce decree before she is allowed to remarry"

Roni,

 

Thanks for the update about the divorce law in Costa Rica.

 

To me, the new law makes much more sense.
