South Carolina woman lobbies for change in divorce law

According to The Sun News, the wife of a North Augusta man who killed their two sons and then committed suicide in January met with Gov. Mark Sanford this week in hopes of changing the state's divorce laws to potentially help other families. She believes that if she could have divorced her husband on grounds of mental cruelty, then she and her sons would have been out of the marriage.

Mental cruelty is not a ground for divorce in SC.
