No. I think people should be able to get divorced for whatever reason they want. So stay the same I guess is my answer.

I think that until there is marriage equality, the only people that should be allowed to divorce are those in abuse situations. But I'm cynical like that.

Ask me how you can be of at least average intelligence!

I honestly think it depends. Will there be exceptions to women divorcing their abusive husbands or vice versa?

Why don't we make getting a marriage license harder to obtain? Make the waiting period longer, or require X amount of pre marital counseling? Seems like that makes more sense than making divorce harder, let's work on making the marriage stronger first.

The parenting classes option confuses me...so parents should stay in a failed marriage and be miserable so that their kids can what, learn that parents don't have to love each other just tolerate each other?
