The extract from Paul's second book de adulteriis which is quoted at Digest 24.2.9 has been the source of much discussion about its implications for Roman divorce procedure. The text reads:nullum divortium ratum est nisi septem civibus Romanis puberibus adhibitis praeter libertumeius qui divortium faciet. libertum accipiemus etiam eum, qui a patre avo proavo et ceteris susum versum manumissus sit.
