* ForgottenTrope: [[DivorceInReno The Haitian divorce]] of, well, "Haitian Divorce." Until the liberalization of US divorce law, East Coast Americans trying to divorce their spouses without that spouse's consent would travel to Haiti to get divorced, since Haitian law had long permitted unilateral divorce. This was the most common alternative to Nevada divorce for people on the East Coast, since Haiti was closer than Nevada; one reason you see it less in fiction is that unlike Nevada divorce--whose laws and decisions on marriage and divorce, being those of an American state, must [[AmericanPoliticalSystem be given "full faith and credit"]] by other states--Haitian divorce in the US is governed by the less-expansive law of "comity." Thus many state courts--e.g. UsefulNotes/NewJersey--refused to recognize Haitian divorces until the state legislature adopted no-fault divorce as well. However, New York did recognize Haitian divorces (bizarrely, because it long had the most restrictive divorce laws in the nation--they didn't adopt no-fault until ''2010'').
