A vinculo matrimonii

A vinculo matrimonii – this term comes from Latin and literally means “from the bond of matrimony”. Nowadays in the sphere of Family Law, it is used to refer to a divorce, which is absolutely ended. So as a result of this procedure, the ex-spouses can marry again without any legal burden.

Such divorce differs than the separation, which only proclaims that the spouses live separately, but does not destroy the legal connection between them, as created by the act of marriage.
