Catholic Man Challenging Nebraska’s No-Fault Divorce Law

A devoutly Catholic husband who refused to grant his wife a divorce on religious grounds is urging Nebraska’s highest court to overturn the state’s no-fault divorce law,

      If the state supreme court agrees with Michael Dycus, it could leave Nebraska as the only state without a law that lets couples end their marriage without assigning blame. 

     Dycus is challenging a district court judge’s decision to approve the divorce, contending that his wife didn’t give a valid reason why their 33-year marriage failed. 

    His attorney argues that Nebraska’s no-fault divorce law violates the state constitution because it doesn’t allow him the same due-process and equal-protection rights that he’s guaranteed in other types of court cases.
