Have a look at this streamline video : Euronews : EU proposes simplifying cross-border divorces (http://euronews.net/create_html.php?page=pass&article=376478&lng=1#)

Some interesting statistics. There are 2.2 million marriages in the EU each year, including 350,000 international ones (almost one fourth !). 16% of the 875,000 yearly divorces involved couples with different nationality.

The new legislation, if passed, would allow couples to choose between the divorce laws either of their respective country, or of the country they live or last lived in together, if it is different.
