This was also common in Great Britain until about 1980.  Additionally, people getting a divorce had to be very careful that any friends were not quoted as accomplices by The Queen's Proctor (a crown office specifically for this purpose) to nullify the petition.

My parents were divorced in Brooklyn in the late 1940s.  At that time, and earlier, the only legitimate reason for divorce was  adultery.  As a result, many couples arranged a scenario in a hotel, so as to be caught in flagrante delicto with a willing accomplice.
