dc.description.abstractThis paper focuses on analyzing three New York divorce cases from the 1850s, 1860s, and 1920s. By studying these cases, this paper will endeavor to answer the following questions: First what was the nature of the public perception of marriage and divorce in New York as reflected in these three cases respectively, and how did the public view change since the antebellum era? Second, what was the public and social perception of gender, specifically, the changing perception of gender roles and virtue defined by the marital bond as shown in these cases?
