Couple seeking to undo their divorce get turned down

The Associated Press

CONCORD — Should those irreconcilable differences suddenly become reconcilable, don't go looking to get un-divorced in New Hampshire.

The state's Supreme Court this month upheld a lower court ruling refusing to vacate a New Castle couple's 2014 divorce after 24 years of marriage.

Terrie Harmon and her ex-husband, Thomas McCarron, argued that their divorce decree was erroneous because they mended fences and are a couple once more.

The justices, in a unanimous ruling issued December 2nd, said the law specifically allows them to grant divorces but not undo them.

Attorney Joshua Gordon, appointed to defend the lower court's ruling, said allowing the couple's divorce to be undone would bring into question the finality of all divorces.

Phone calls to Harmon and McCarron were not returned.
