Reconstructionist Judaism Offers Egalitarian Divorce Options
In addition to the traditional get (bill of divorce) granted by the husband, Reconstructionism offers a woman-initiated get and a mutual get.
Reconstructionist get options enable one or both partners to attain spiritual closure, whether or not they have the cooperation of their former partner. It also allows couples who are able to cooperate with one another to create a meaningful ceremony, perhaps in the company of a few friends and witnesses, in order to begin the healing process.
