Rzepa ran an interesting item that Poles should consider before marrying a foreigner. One of the points stated that under Polish law the party at fault in a divorce case has to pay alimony until death.

Polonius, i didn't read article(looks like you have to register) but to me it looks like a dead law if the couple live outside Poland. How is Polish spouse going to execute Polish law outside Poland? Even if there is a court ruling, there is a loooong road from ruling to execution.

Dunno. Didn't write the article and am not a lawyer. I imagine they don't extradite people for alimony arrears.
I can see where many of the once free online papers are increasingly forcing users to pay. Or they give you one or two sentences for free and then to see the rest you must subscribe.

Poles should consider before marrying a foreigner.

Don't forget that you can start a divorce in the country you reside.

So if you marry a Pole and it all falls apart start your divorce in your home country and this STUPID law is to the bin.

Read Brussels II Bis it walks all over STUPID Polish law and Poland signed it.

it looks like a dead law if the couple live outside Poland

Wrong. It doesn't matter where you live its where you start your divorce. Once a court is seised you work under the law of that country.

The truth of the matter is that in most cases this is not applied. This one of the reasons some Poles choose the "at fault" divorce. In most "at fault" cases, both partners are found to be at fault after wasting up to 3 years of court time. I remember reading somewhere that this is likely to change as it is currently overloading the court system as divorce has become very popular in Poland.

Good luck with that. You can get divorced in a Polish court due to the fact that your husband gets roaring drunk on an almost daily basis and kicks the fucck out of you at least once a week. Even though you have a big stack of papers detailing all your hospital treatment and another pile of paper from the police detailing all their involvement, the court won't even bother to look at that paperwork and will decide that you and your husband are both at fault. Then you'll have to pay alimony to your husband because he's too much of a drunken loser to get and hold a job. The Polish family court really is something special even by Polish standards.
