Answer . \nUsually because they are stingy and lazy and are expecting you to do it! It happened to me and believe me when I say I ran with the ball he tossed over and got a lawyer. I played a real sneaky on him. I went to my lawyer, so my husband had to get one. The divorce should have been …easy as there were no children or property involved, but he was just miserable. He was going to give evidence so the divorce would be quick, but he would back out all the time. He was the one cheating! Finally I told my lawyer to phone his and tell him that if he didn't settle this divorce quickly and if he didn't stop blaming me (expecting me to pick up the tab for the divorce) that I would contest the divorce in court. This would have made him wait 3 years or more to ever marry and his mistress was putting pressure on him for the divorce to be finalized. He was livid and had to pay for the divorce. After all he put me through it made me feel darn good! We both moved on and yes, he did marry his mistress.. Answer . Might be too much hassle. If it's in CA his ex wife will get half of whatever they own together. It is also VERY costly with lawyer fees and time off work to go to court dates etc. Most men stay married (even though they no longer have ties to the ex), but go on living their lives as single men. It might be that's the case, and if it was really that ugly of a seperation, he has no intentions of ever getting married again. ( Full Answer )

Before 4/12/72, a divorce became final one year after it was granted. The date of the granting of the decree, usually the date of the trial, commenced the running of the 1-year period which must elapse before the divorce became final. A remarriage in any State prior to the expiration of that 1-year …is void, because the decree granted has the same effect as a decree nisi and does not sever the marital ties. (If either party dies within the 1-year period indicated above, the marriage is deemed dissolved by final decree immediately before such death.) (See last paragraph of entry for change of position.) After 4/11/72, and before 2/1/78, the date of the granting of the decree, usually the date of the trial, commenced the running of the 6-month period which must elapse before the divorce became final. This applied to a divorce decree resulting from the service of a summons upon the defendant before 2/1/78. A remarriage in any State prior to the expiration of that 6 months is voidable. (If either party dies within the 6-month period indicated above, the marriage is deemed dissolved by final decree immediately before such death.) On or after 2/1/78, a divorce decree resulting from the service of a summons upon the defendant is final immediately, except that a 6-month waiting period during which the parties must not marry will be established in each decree. Any marriage in violation of this prohibition is voidable. All marriages referred to under the former laws as being void are now considered voidable. Any remarriages can become valid if the marriage is entered into by one of the parties in good faith and if the parties continue to live together following the removal of the impediment; i.e., the expiration of the waiting period. This is a change of position effective 12/27/78. ( Full Answer )
