You need to remain calm. A civil divorce has no bearing on the validity of the bond, but its acquisition acknowledges that no attempt at reconciliation is likely to be undertaken.

Unfortunately, there is little appeal in issuing decrees that are most likely to be ignored by one or both of the parties involved.
