Elven divorce

Challenge Details

The Doom of Finwe and Miriel makes an allowance for widows and widowers to remarry, but what about if the spouse refuses to die? In HoME, Maglor has a wife. She isn't a widow, but in canon Maglor never returns. Imagine she appeals to the Valar to be released from her marriage. Could they grant her a divorce? And what would an Elven divorce ritual be like?
