The separation of a married woman from the bed and board of her husband -- divorce a mensa et toro (or thoro), ``from bed board.''
Pranjal Srivastava (Lawyer) 31 May 2010
This phrase designates a Divorce which is really akin to a separation granted by a court whereby a Husband and Wife are not legally obligated to live together, but their marriage has not been dissolved. Neither spouse has the right to remarry where there is a divorce a mensa et thoro; only parties who have been awarded a divorce a vinculo matrimonii, the more common type of divorce, can do so.
