1. Claims | Passau LO

The following charts show the claim interests in the main proceedings. Chart 1.0 covers the entire period of investigation. Using the arrows located to the right and left of the chart you can access further charts which, starting with the number 1.1, each differentiate between the different time segments. Slideshow 1 deals with the claim interests independent of the sex of the plaintiff, slideshow 2 contains the claim interests of the wives, slideshow 3 those of the husbands.

The differentiation according to sex highlights the differing interests which motivated the wives and husbands to file a complaint. In all of the investigated time periods it was predominantly wives who filed for a separation or divorce, while the claims for order of cohabitation were predominantly filed by husbands.

2. Verdicts | Passau LO

The following charts show the different verdicts in the main proceedings issued by the Consistory of Passau LO. Chart 1.0 covers the entire period of investigation. Using the arrows located to the right and left of the chart you can access further charts which, starting with the number 1.1, each differentiate between the verdicts of the different time segments.

Slideshow 1 deals with the verdicts independent of the sex of the plaintiff, slideshow 2 contains the verdicts in main proceedings filed by the wives, while slideshow 3 focuses on the proceedings filed by the husbands.

The charts clearly show how difficult it is was to get even a limited separation from bed and board. It is also noteworthy that the differentiation according to sex hardly makes any difference although wives filed predominantly for a separation or divorce, while husbands predominantly filed for an order to force the wife to resume cohabitation.
