In ancient Rome, a couple could divorce just by declaring their intent not to live together in front of seven witnesses. Divorce was common, especially in the upper classes, and a divorced woman could receive her dowry back in full. She could also regain her independence upon a divorce. However, a woman found guilty of adultery would receive just half of her dowry. The law did not recognize adultery by husbands.
