This week, the former president of Guatemala, Alvaro Colom, told news sources that he hopes to reconcile with his ex-wife. Last year the president separated from his wife, Sandra Torres, as the country's presidential election came toward an end. Prior to the separation announcement, Ms. Torres was trying to change the country's laws so that spouses of presidents could run for office. Guatemala does not allow the spouses of presidents to seek office at this time.
Ms. Torres then decided to run for office in last November's election on a left-wing ticket. However, her campaign was put to an end by the Supreme Court which ruled that her divorce was a "sham". Following the ruling, Ms. Torres withdrew from the race and Otto Perez Molina won the election. Now, Mr. Colom has announced that he wants to re-unite with his wife. The two have been married for over ten years. If you are in the midst of a complicated divorce, you may wish to seek legal counsel from a
