Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May will file for­mal Brexit di­vorce pa­pers on Wednesday, pitch­ing the United King­dom into the un­known and trig­ger­ing years of un­cer­tain ne­go­ti­a­tions that will test the en­durance of the Euro­pean Union. Nine months af­ter Bri­tons voted to leave, May will no­tify EU Coun­cil Pres­i­dent Don­ald Tusk in a let­ter that the U.K. re­ally is quit­ting the bloc it joined in 1973. The prime min­is­ter, an ini­tial op­po­nent of Brexit who won the top job in the po­lit­i­cal tur­moil that fol­lowed the ref­er­en­dum vote, will then have two years to set­tle the terms of the di­vorce be­fore it comes into ef­fect in late March 2019.
