In early civilizations marriage and marriage dissolution were considered private matters. Marriage and divorce were first placed under comprehensive state regulation in Rome during the reign of Augustus (27 b.c.-a.d. 14). As Christianity grew, governments came under religious control by Catholic Church, the most powerful of the Christian sects, strictly forbade divorce. The only exception to this ban was if one of the parties had not been converted to Christianity before the marriage. During the 1500s the Protestant Reformation movement in Europe rejected religious control over marriage and helped move the matter of divorce from the church to the state. Divorces were granted by European courts upon a showing of fault, such as adultery, cruelty, or desertion.
