From board and bed (legal separation)

A kind of divorce which does not dissolve the marriage bond, but merely authorizes a separate life of the husband and wife.

  

Lat. '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. This kind of divorce does not affect the legitimacy of children, nor authorize a second marriage.
