Witness testimony and the proof of existence of illegitimate children were the leading evidence in divorce proceedings.
Unsurprisingly, the XIX century looks rather different from that of today: in 1840 only 198 divorces took place; in 1880 – 920; and in 1890 – 942.
Needless to say, that put me far behind in everything, including updating this site, so your patience is appreciated.
As I mentioned in our last update, this year marks the 40th anniversary of the first ever in-depth scientific examination of the Shroud of Turin by the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP) on October 8-13, 1978.
1897 census indicated that just one man in a thousand was divorced, and there were two divorcees for a thousand of the female population.
Spousal suicide, domestic violence and the murder of husbands by wives have all fallen as a result.Physicist John Jackson, also from the Air Force Academy, was the co-founder of the STURP team.Ken Stevenson, another member from the Air Force Academy, was the Public Affairs Coordinator for the STURP team. Gonella is holding, which is a now rare copy of the original STURP Test Plan that was only issued to each team member and certain Turin officials.You should find this an excellent way to sample the evolving content of this website.And you can also view every previous year's Website News pages at the links below: Sorry for the very long silence, as it has been a full six months since our last website update.But “children have rights, too,” and the instability of a growing number of families harms them in many ways.Scammers take advantage of people looking for romantic partners, often via dating websites, apps or social media by pretending to be prospective companions.This statistic depicts the age distribution of Russia from 2006 to 2016.In 2016, about 17.29 percent of Russia's population fell into the 0-14 year category, 68.92 percent into the 15-64 age group and 13.79 percent were over 65 years of age.I think the expressions on everyone's faces indicate there was a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment amongst all those involved. Luigi Gonella was the Scientific Advisor to the Archbishop of Turin in 1978 and still held that position ten years later, during the radiocarbon dating of the Shroud.Physicist Eric Jumper, then of the Air Force Academy, was the co-founder of the STURP team. Jose Cottino was titled the "Keeper of the Shroud" and held one of the three keys to its reliquary. Adam Otterbein was President of the Holy Shroud Guild that acted as our liason with Turin and King Umberto.
