No-fault divorce was adopted by the state of Massachusetts in 1977. The common legal reason for such divorce is "irretrievable breakdown of the marriage". The major implication of no-fault divorce is that divorcing couples do not have to decide who will be "at fault" in order to submit the divorce papers to the court.
