Should all states introduce the ability for couples to file no-fault divorce?

  • Why does the state care why a marriage is ending?

    I think that all states should have no-fault divorces because the details of a marriage are ultimately not the state's business. Any two people, even people of the same sex, should be able to enter into a civil union, and they should be able to dissolve that union if they want to as well. It's just not the state's business.

  • No-Fault Divorce Should be Introduced in all States

    We live in a society that has become increasingly promiscuous. Is this a bad thing? Not necessarily. However, we should adjust our marriage laws so that people who face conflict in marriage can divorce easily. Marriage has diminished in the sense of morality, and marriage can cause some serious politics if it isn't handled swiftly. We need to make the divorce process easier.

  • Many married couple are able to dissolve the marriage amicably.

    While it may not be the norm, there are an overwhelming amount of married couples who realize their mistake, and mutually agree to divorce without seeking compensation from the other. When little to no assets were combined in the duration of the marriage (particularly short marriages, or marriages that did not produce children), and the agreement for divorce is mutual, couples should not have to state a reason, or put blame on the other for legal purposes.

  • No-fault divorce

    No-fault divorce is a divorce in which the dissolution of a marriage does not require a showing of wrongdoing by either party. No-fault divorce was introduced by the Bolsheviks following the Russian Revolution of 1917.[citation needed] Before the Revolution, churches, mosques, and synagogues defined family life. It was the ecclesiastical law of the various denominations that controlled the family, marriage, and divorce. For example, the official registration of birth, death, marriage, and divorce was the responsibility of the church parish. Under these non-secular laws, divorce was highly restricted. Probably the most well-known no-fault law was enacted in the state of California, and signed by Governor Ronald Reagan, coming into effect on January 1, 1970.

  • The state should not force me to justify my relationship.

    Almost every state in the US allows for no-fault divorce. This simplifies the divorce proceedings as couples can end their relationship without facing long court trials just to prove whose fault the divorce was. The processing of this tyoe of divorce is completed faster than aa at fault divorce, where the fault of one of the spouse for the end of marriage needs to be proven.

  • No according to current divorce laws!

    I will say yes i agree that if the law was simple as we get married, we decide not to be married, we divorce and go our separate ways no alimony, child support and etc. then yes it is not anyone buisness why i want to divorce! But I say NO while the laws are the way they are where 80% of divorces are filed by women who in most cases only do it because the option to divorce without consequence is available to them as well as punishing the man in most cases for their decision as they leave it is not fair to award any one male or female for divorce! Or change the law so that who ever files for divorce forfeits the opportunity to cash in on kids, money, house and etc and then i will support no fault divorce! But for now no it is bad overall because it conflicts with the other divorce laws which are unfair and just gives a unneccessary incentive for women or men to get divorced! Marriage is supposed to be for forever have we forgotten that?
