UNIFORM MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE ACT

Prefatory Note

When the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws was formed in 1892, two of the major subjects named as appropriate for uniform laws were commercial paper and marriage and divorce. A law on the former was soon achieved; it was not until August 6, 1970, when the Conference first promulgated this Act, that agreement was reached on a measure combining the latter two subjects. In the intervening years, some dozen statutes were approved dealing with various aspects of one or the other. None of them received substantial acceptance by the states.
