Well you hear wrong as of 1995 with the passing of the 15th amendment to the constitution divorce is legal.
Prior to this period the law was strongly influenced by the Catholic church which in previous decades did have alot of power and influence.
Thankfully that has been strongly diluted now.

Actually no. Divorce isn't prohibited. Sure it was in the 1937 Constitution but it has since been changed in 1995, in the fifteenth amendment. It states that if you are seperated for four years, you can get a divorce. This was a big step, because before this the government would ask the Church for adviceSource(s): I am Irish and Catholic.
