In practice, however, a few wives and husbands sued their spouses in courts of equity. This volume reproduces twenty such suits from the Court of Requests the poor mans Chancery during the final century of its operation. These extraordinary cases involving separated couples provide a fascinating and often surprising view of the limits of married peoples rights and options at a time when divorce in the modern sense was unavailable.

The courts decrees and orders show how Masters, or judges, of Requests dealt with the question of married womens legal status and with claims for alimony (by men as well as women). Historians and literary scholars will appreciate the richness of detail of the written pleadings and depositions that document the variety of human failings that parties alleged had devastated their marriages.
