Story: Divorce and separation

After separation

Divorce was ordinary by the late 20th century, when some of its difficulties and challenges were the basis for a popular series of advertisements selling butter. One of them is shown here – a divorced dad picks up his daughter from school. She tries to persuade him to come home, but he tells her that his new place is his home.
