I Am Getting A Divorce! A Lil’ Reno History
Back in 1931, a Reno entrepreneur, Bill Graham, who owned the Bank Club Casino in Center Street, had successfully pushed for Nevada to legalize open gambling, and in March that year the law was passed. Nevada had also passed divorce laws in in 1927 which allowed people to divorce after six weeks of residency rather than six months. It followed that many people came to Reno to gamble, and also to get a divorce, and in fact the phrase “I am going to Reno” became known as a substitute for “I am divorcing my wife/husband”. Indeed, in 1950 the writer Georges Simenon who was living in the US went to Reno to divorce his first wife.
