Okay, in defense of the state of NC. I've been divorced for 16 years now and I ended up on this site because a friend of mine is going through a divorce and needed some advise so I set up the account for him.
Anyway........I divorced in TN which only requires a 90 day waiting period. However, if you are pregnant, the divorce cannot be finalized until the baby's birth. You know, hormones and all. So, my son was 3 mos old and I was pregnant with our daughter when my ex filed for divorce. I really did not want a divorce, I just wanted him to quit cheating, but I was in no position financially, physically, or mentally to contest it. In his mind he found someone else he wanted to share his life with. Our divorce was final 3 days after our daughter was born and 1 day before our son's first birthday. Two weeks to the day later, he married the woman he had been cheating on me with. Well it seems that cheating with her was a lot more fun than being married to her because two weeks later he filed for divorce from her and wanted to come back home. He had to wait the 90 days for his now 2nd divorce to go through. I didn't let him move back in, I decided to wait at least 6 months before I'd marry him again. I really thought he had a case of thinking the grass was greener on the other side. So we married again (his now 3rd marriage) and 2 weeks later I caught him with her again! I filed for divorce and after 90 days the divorce was final and I moved to Germany with the kids. Though I think a year and a day is a long time to wait, especially if there are no kids or the marriage was short lived, 90 days is too short. Think about it, within one year and one month my ex had gotten 3 divorces.
