Was It the Start or the Finish?

A newspaper may mention that your ancestor's divorce was being heard at the current term of the court. Do not necessarily conclude that they were divorced. Just because the divorce was filed or proceedings had begun does not mean the process was completed and the couple actually divorced. 

There are other times where a notice that something is going to happen does necessarily mean that it will happen. 

Sort of like how not everyone who gets a marriage license gets married either.
