California first established laws for divorce in 1851. Then, the grounds for divorce were impotence, extreme cruelty, desertion, neglect, habitual intemeprance, fraud, adultery, or conviction of a felony. At about that time, California, per capita, had the highest divorce rates anywhere. California was literally the divorce capital of the world. The 2009 census tells us that the divorce rate is greater than ever.
