    I know this is a very sexist response, but that's gonna favor the males, typically.

    technically death can't be the end result

    well, there are a couple of ways to deal with that, we can choose types of combat that don't depend on physical strength, or the woman can use a "champion"

    "Divorce by Combat"

    [​IMG]

    Clyde the carter and his wife, Esther, have a serious marital dispute and they bring it before a judge. The cruel judge declares that they must resolve the dispute in trial by combat. Of course, neither Clyde nor Esther have any combat skills. Nevertheless, somebody digs a hole for Clyde to stand in and gives him a cudgel. Esther is given a rock tied into her bridal veil with which to bash Clyde's head in.
