'Easy' Divorce during WW2

'Easy' Divorce during WW2

Somewhere, sometime I read about serving soldiers,sailors and airmen, getting easy divorces from adulterous wives while they were away from England fighting. I have a vague recollection that it was called a "pay-packet divorce" or something like that.

I can't find anything on this, but I really hope I'm not dreaming.

Can somebody please help?

I have never heard of divorce being easier during the war. That the wives left behind split from husbands, or were caught having affairs is a a well known thing.

Could this be a slang term for someone punishing their un-faithful spouse by refusing to send financial assistance from their pay ? I am speculating because I have never heard the term before.
