Accepting a "simple" explanation without thought is not the standard
of proof that most of us demand.
Actually we have no simple explanation. Divorce? Why? On what grounds?
Your original statement reads
"To be slightly more specific
Peter de Braose and his wife Joan de Percy were *divorced* "
I still maintain that this is speculative until more evidence is
uncovered. I do not suggest any of my speculations are correct - just
that they are examples of possible alternatives. There are others.
