West Virginia Law Review

Document Type



Almost twenty years have passed since the publication of a series of articles dealing with the substantive law of marriage and divorce in West Virginia. Most of the marriage and divorce cases decided during this time involve no more than the application of already well-established principles. Such cases will not be discussed in this article. There have been enough new developments in the field, however, both by legislation and by court decision, to make worthwhile this effort to bring the articles up to date.
