  • Getting a divorce nowadays is so simple. Anyone can walk out on anyone for anything.

    Children nowadays are the ones most affected by divorce. I believe that a parent shouldn't just be able to walk out like it is nothing. Not only does it make life harder for everyone, it makes the words "death do us part." a little fake don't you think? It's disappointing.

  • You got married

    If you decided to get married to someone whom you don't know well enough to decide whether they might be abusive or not that is your fault for jumping into a marriage. If you decided to get married you should atleast try to work it out before getting a divorce, and if you have kids you should definetly try harder to stay together but if it doesn't work out at least take a month to try to work things out

  • Divorce is not just a personal decision but a social issue

    I agree that divorce is definitely a way to escape bad and abusive marriages, however I find it very hard to believe that 55% of marriages are bad ones. So a large amount of divorces can be avoided which not only benefits the couple involved but ensures a much more stable and loving environment for their children and leads to a more stable society as the family unit is the foundation of a society. There may be people who argue that the traditional family unit can be replaced by other relationships however it has been established that these relationships have a much higher rate of failure even when compared to marriages.

  • Marriage is the foundation of Society

    Divorce should be made much more harder to attain...

    Since marriage is the foundation of a society. Easy divorce laws do nothing but give people incentives to end their marriages rather than work on fixing them. It provides an easy way out rather than tackling the problem head on. I believe removing those incentives, by toughening up divorce laws and removing any welfare/benefits out of divorce will, first make people more responsible about choosing their marriage partner (since divorce will not be an option, except for a few cases), second it will force couples in unhappy marriages to start working on their marriages (since escape through divorce will not be an option), third there would be considerable savings for the Goverment, fourth less children would suffer as there would be far less broken households with single parents. Also it's been shown how damaging divorce can be for children, it affects every aspect of a child's life, be it education, ethics/morality, behaviour/action plus those children themselves are more likely to divorce in their own marriages since they have not had anyone to lookup to (two parents) for guidance. Plus it's not just children but the whole family and in-laws that suffer as a result of a break up. In addition, I am a christian and believe in the sanctity of marriage. In the bible divorce is only permitted in a few extreme cases and even then it's not encouraged.
    I also believe quite strongly that, these Divorce laws, Cultural and Social changes, Religious/Moral changes, Womens rights/Feminism have played a fundamental role in the destruction of traditional Western Culture as can be seen by the increase of Violent crime, Gun crime, other criminal activities, out of wedlock children, pre-maritial sex, teenage pregnancies, increase in illiteracy in schools, breakdown of traditional morals and people's tendency to look at marriage as a contract and not as a Covenent.

  • Laws Should Make It More Difficult to Get Divorce.

    People are changing spouses like the weather. The children are suffering. People who leave are cowards and not responsible if they are not being abused. Many leave to began new relationships. This action become a way of life. If people were made to stay and be responsible, the world would be a better place. Children will feel more secure because committed family responsibilities will help some adults to grow up.

  • Yes it should be harder for a divorce

    Happy one day and divorced the next . It should be very hard get a divorce because its easy to have kids then a brain strom hits oh i don't need you any more
    I can live of the government now. All you have to do is fill out a form on the Internet and its done this is bull shit .

  • It affects more than just the couple

    Many people argue that divorce should be easy because it is between two consenting adults, The thing is, divorce affects more than just the consenting adults. It harms the children (50% of children come from divorced homes). Children who come from divorced parents are also more likely to get divorced themselves. Divorces should be harder to contain, with something such as couples counseling or a certain amount of times. Life I said the main reason I believe this is because it affects children involved in these families.

  • Yes, why give up

    If you spend time to get married then you need to stick it out and try. Go to marriage councler and try to do it. If the can't do it then they can go to marriage court but to get that divorce need to show they worked on it. People just give up when it's not easy and marriage shouldn't aloud that. So I think it should be harder to get a divorce.

  • It should be harder to get married

    The problem is that it is very easy to get married. If you want to reduce divorces, make more difficult the process to get married. People should be required to live with their future spouse for 2 years before they are allowed to marry. It is easy to have a relationship when they don't live together.

  • Abusive relationships should be escapable

    Approximately 1/4 relationships have experienced a verbally or physically abusive from their partner. Why should humans be forced to be married to someone who hurts them physically or mentally? It is only after marriage or knowing someone or living with someone for a long time that people begin to see different sides of a person. Someone who you believe to be peaceful and perfect could also be your worst nightmare. I believe that marriages should not made more difficult to escape if they want.

  • Why live unhappy !!!!

    People sometimes don't always love the same person for there whole life. Even though they thought that they would. So why do you think that they should have to go through all that trouble to get a divorce. When yet all you have to do to a boyfriend is say it over and they leave. So why be unhappy,

  • Why live unhappy?

    My parents had a divorce when I was about 3 years old and I can still remember the fights. Now both my parents have remarried and have children with their new spouses and everyone is happy. Why hurt your child even more by fighting every day in front of them? Instead two new families were made and are living happy.

  • Does not address the underline problem .

    We should be working to make sure people don't rush in to married and have kids. Forcing people to just have to "stick it out" is just crap idea. Yes kids do better when the parents are together, but you know what else. They do better in loving families too.

  • That's a bad idea.

    Legally, any two consenting adults are allowed to become legally bonded. If two consenting adults are allowed to enter into this agreement with pretty much no other factors or requirements, why should it be any harder to break those bonds and get divorced than it was to get married in the first place? That violates individual rights, and sets the precedent that you can't take back consent after you've given it, no matter how much the situation may change. At best, this would lead to people stuck in unhappy marriages because it really is just too hard to get out of it. Divorces, in and of themselves, are not bad, so honestly why would we *want* to make them more difficult to obtain?

  • What on Earth for?

    It's already difficult and expensive to get a divorce, and requires use of a legal system that often fosters even more animosity among the people doing so.

    You want to reduce the number of divorces? Make it harder to GET MARRIED. Any two people with photo ID and the cash can get a marriage license.

  • What's the point?

    Marriage is the legal union between two consenting individuals. The right to dissolve this union should be guaranteed, and no one should be able to stand in their way. The U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to privacy, and to make divorce, a dissolution of this legal union, more difficult would be an infringement on the individuals' right to privacy. Divorce is already expensive and difficult; what would be the benefit of making it more difficult? It would just complicate things for everyone.
