Rhode Island's New Divorce Law.
Providence, R. I., July 1. Hereto
fore it has been almost as easy a
matter to obtain a divorce In Rhode
Island as in the Dakotas, but the con
ditions in this regard are radically
changed by the new divorce law
which went into operation today. The
most Importnnt clause in the new
law Is that requiring a bona fide res
idence in the state of at least two
years before applying for a divorce.
This Is expected to put a stop to the
practice of wealthy women of New
York and elsewhere coming to New
port, establishing a so-called resi
dence and in a few months obtaining
an annullment of the marriage con
tract on the grounds of non-support.
