Ireland to liberalize divorce laws

(CNN)Divorce laws in the Republic of Ireland will be liberalized after the results of a referendum were revealed Sunday morning.

Results from Friday’s referendum show 82% of voters want to change the existing law, which is enshrined in the constitution, under which a person can only apply for a divorce after living separately from their spouse for four out of the previous five years.
The clause will now be removed, allowing lawmakers to decide on a new separation period.
