Mensa Et Thoro


[Latin, From bed and board.] A type of DIVORCE that is a partial termination of the duties of a marital relationship.

A divorce mensa et thoro is one that does not provide a HUSBAND AND WIFE with the right to remarry but that permits them to live separately. Such a divorce does not dissolve the marriage but amounts to a legal separation.
