''[[Eerzucht en Behoefte, of De Huwelyksscheiding uit Liefde]]'' ("Ambition and Want, or The Divorce through Love") is the title of a [[Dutch]] translation of a French tragedy in 3 acts. The origins appear a little uncertain in a number of ways.

According to Groot (2010, p. 56), this [[Dutch]] text was most a [[Dutch]] translation by Steenbergen van Goor of ''[[Honneur et Indigence, ou Le Divorce par Amour]]''  by Mathias Weiss and Joseph Patrat,  in its turn a French version of either August von Kotzebue's original tragedy ''[[Der Opfer-Tod]]'' or of his 1795 comedy  ''[[Armuth und Edelsinn]]''.

August von Kotzebue's German play ''[[Der Opfertod]]'' was first performed in 1796, and published by Johann Baptist Wallishauffer in 1798.
