WVC 23 - 4 - 13 §23-4-13. Effect of abandonment of spouse.
Notwithstanding anything herein contained, no sum will be paid to a widow or widower who abandoned the employee before the injury causing death. However, the provisions of this section may not be construed to preclude a widow or widower from receiving compensation in accordance with section ten of this article if the widow or widower was abandoned within a period of two years by the employee for any reason except a reason that would have entitled the deceased employee to an annulment or a divorce as provided in articles three or five, chapter forty-eight of this code.
