"Poor man's divorce" is simply saying that you're widowed or single, not actually getting a divorce. Happened a lot. Before 1858, a full divorce required a private act of Parliament so the opportunity was only available to a few people. After 1858, it was prohibitively expensive, thus the poor man's divorce.
