In a case where the spouse is not known to be dead, nor available to give a Get, that would leave the surviving spouse in limbo, unable to become remarried. This situation is called agunah — the "chained" spouse. This concept appears in the Talmud primarily in connection with a husband who disappeared or was missing in action. This issue unfortunately became common in the aftermath of the Holocaust. Even today, a spouse will sometimes withhold a Get out of spite, or in an attempt to extort money or concessions in the areas of child support, custody, or marital property.
The agunah problem commonly refers to a man who is recalcitrant. However, since Jewish divorce requires mutual consent, if a woman refuses to cooperate in receiving a Get, a man could be in this state of limbo as well. In the State of Israel, if a man was ordered by a Beit Din to give his wife a Get and he refuses, he could be imprisoned until he complies. This type of pressure has proved effective.

This has also helped other faith-based communities who may have similar problems. The topic of agunah is very detailed with many accompanying controversies.

Their children, in turn, are also mamzerim. It's a terrible situation to be in which is why it is imperative that Jewish marriages that end, end with a get and why it is imperative that officiating rabbis carefully inquire into the backgrounds of bride and groom.
