    Movement under way in California to ban divorce

    The effort is meant to be a satirical statement after California voters outlawed gay marriage in 2008, largely on the argument that a ban is needed to protect the sanctity of traditional marriage. If that's the case, then Marcotte reasons voters should have no problem banning divorce.

    Pretty funny stunt, it will be even more funny if it actually makes the ballot.

    There's no reason a state could not do this.
    It might not be a good idea, but it is certainly possible.

    The government should not be involved in marriage, period. Now if you want to enter in to a legal contract, then so be it, but I am of the mind that two adults can handle their own affairs, and should.

    Its really not that easy. If the state did not define the interaction between the law and the rights of the spouses -- and make sure those rights are protected -- the resuling mess would be, well, huge.

    Imagine, the state playing no role in divorce.

    Indeed!

    Of course, under the same argument as that presented here, CA could/should also ban adultry.

    WBJC would -never- go there again...

    Like I said, marriage should be a private matter, between the two adults involved. They should then sign a legal contract if they believe they cannot trust the other to come to a reasonable conclusion, should this situation become untenable. As far as for the children, I think we all know by now that the woman always owns her child, unless it is discovered that she cannot care for that child properly. I am for true equality, not this hypocritical nonsense we have today, just a transparent inequality.

    Yeaaaah....
    Look, it may very well be that you fully believe this is 'better'.
    Given that, I would guess that you have not been thru the processes you describe and the other related processes you do not. Believe me when I say that there are numerous times when you very definitely want the state involved in marriage.

    This would certainly expose the hypocrisy of those who say they voted in favor of Prop 8 to "protect the sanctity of marriage".

    I've always wondered about this myself. If the religious right is so bloody fired up about "protecting the sanctity of marriage," why didn't they ban divorce eons ago?



    Here's the answer: They're ****ing hypocrites.
