In Closson v. Closson, 30 Wyo. 1, 8, 215 P. 485, 486, 29 A.L.R. 1371, 1373, it was explained that although marriage is a civil contract from which springs a relation or status in which the State and the public are interested, and which has always been deemed subject to legislative control, our laws with reference to awarding alimony upon the dissolution of a valid marriage are peculiarly dependent upon a local statute.Summary of this case from Martens v.
