Legitimate grounds once existed for divorce without a "get" from a husband

In their fight to change the approach to marriage in Israel, Kolech and company note something important from remote times:
The problem of agunot will be addressed by Blu Greenberg, founder of the Jewish Orthodox Feminists Alliance and a conference panelist. She will highlight in particular the possibilities for systemic solutions within the boundaries of Jewish law.

In Jewish law, a man must willingly grant the bill of divorce, or “get,” before a woman can remarry and have children.

Greenberg argues that rabbis of the Talmudic era as well as from later periods were amenable under certain conditions to solutions such as annulling a marriage where it proved impossible to end the union with the wife’s receipt of the get from her husband.

“Elemental justice demands wider use of such halachic solutions.

Rather than have a woman suffer permanent anchorage to a marriage that was not functional, the rabbis found a way to release her,” Greenberg told the Post.
In that case, it's clear that a lot of the religious representatives, now notably Haredi, are nothing more than selfish old goats who decided to alter the system to suit their beliefs and not what was done during Talmudic times. Just why the laws must be changed - shall we say - back to something better.
