Resumen:
Artículo enviado a publicar el 9 de septiembre de 2012, aceptado para su publicación el 26 de noviembre de 2012 y publicado el 28 de marzo de 2013. This article examines the formulation, application, and effects of Article 31 of Law 14.394, which introduced absolute divorce into Argentina, albeit briefly: the law was passed in December 1954 and suspended in March 1956. Our study sheds light on la dimension juridica of the topic that has not been considered to date. We present the results of our research in two parts. The first part analyzes the text of the law and the debates around it in Argentina´s Congress. The second part provides an overview of divorce sentences from the time and then considers certain exceptional cases. The specific features of the debates and sentences considered here provide a more complex vision of Juan Domingo Perón´s governments definitions of the new family.
