Word:

A mensa et thoro

A men´sa et tho´ro
1.(Law) A kind of divorce which does not dissolve the marriage bond, but merely authorizes a separate life of the husband and wife.

A MENSA ET THORO, from bed and board. A divorce a mensa et thoro, is rather a separation of the parties by act of law, than a dissolution of the marriage. It may be granted for the causes of extreme cruelty or desertion of the wife by the husband. 2 Eccl. Rep. 208. This kind of divorce does not affect the legitimacy of children, nor authorize a second marriage. V. A vinculo matrimonii; Cruelty Divorce.
