>>Ecclesiastical Divorce (practiced today in the Eastern Churches only, but accepted by the West)
The west rejects Ecclesiastical Divorces. The ONLY civil divorce recognized by the western Church is separation of room and board -- legal separation.

I thought I'd learned that the Western Church does not GRANT Ecclesiastical Divorces, but that the Western Church accepts the VALIDITY of those granted by the Eastern Churches.
Hermann may wish to elaborate further.
