CWN Editor's Note: The husband, according to the court decision, argued “that the court’s dissolution of the marriage would infringe on his free exercise of religion as an Orthodox Christian. Husband further argued that Maryland’s no-fault divorce statute, as applied to him, violated his constitutional right to marry; that the divorce would infringe on his children’s fundamental rights; and that the dissolution of his marriage would impair the obligations under his marriage contract, in violation of the Contracts Clause of the United States Constitution.”
