ABSTRACT
The divorce separates the partners, but the question of divorce separates the nation. With these words of Carbonnier, the author introduces his paper on divorce in France. The paper presents the concept of divorce from the adoption of Code civil in 1804 to the recent French law on divorce coming into force in 2005. Within this timeline, the author discovers two conceptions of divorce. The contemporary one recognises a dissolvable matrimony, the second, traditional one, views the matrimony as a perpetual bond of partners. The author emphasises the need of finding the proper compromise between both conceptions.
