    To do it successfully, yes, you do; or are you unaware of the data on single parent homes -vs- 2 parent homes?

    The state only has a compelling interest in couples raising children.

    No children = no interest.

    You can have a two parent home without being married.

    Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed are an example of this.

    You'll get no argument from me there.

    IMO "irreconcilable differences" should be taken off the list for just that reason.

    The state steps in and declairs the couple "common law" married. You can even get alomoney off it.

    Why do you think it is included?

    My thought is so abused women can end it without fear of retribution for smearing their abusive spouse's name.

    And that doesn't require state involvement.

    Or heteros who don't want children!! Or people who are unable to have them!!

    To do it successfully, yes, you do; or are you unaware of the data on single parent homes -vs- 2 parent homes?
    Are you unaware of the data of 2 parent homes that don't have state sanctioned marriage contracts involved?

    Are you unable to comprehend that people can and DO have children together and raise children together all withOUT the government getting involved?

    *GASP* I know, it's a big shocker, eh? It's been going on for thousands of years, actually. And still going on today.

    Right.
    What else are you saying?

    See, let's refresh your memory:
    If that's not your intent then your relationship doesn't rise to any level disserving respect.
    Unless one is able and willing to have children, apparently one's relationship doesn't deserve respect. And it doesn't "rise to the level of marriage". And as such, one cannot be "cheated on".

    Please explain how to take your statement any differently.

    The state only has a compelling interest in couples raising children.

    No children = no interest.
    So again... people that don't have children can't be hurt by cheating? Because you twisted this whole conversation around to TEH CHILDREN when we were talking about CHEATING.

    More than one person in this thread has said that the emotional pain and suffering caused by cheating should be grounds for jailtime. When I and others queried as to other means with which people inflict the same, if not more emotional pain and suffering and why those things shouldn't have the same punishment, you suddenly went off about biological imperatives and children, and families, etc, etc. As if people who don't sign state contracts can't have families. As if people who don't sign state contracts can't incur pain and suffering.

    Would you care to be just a little more concise in your answer and stop beating around the bush? All you have said thus far is that people who don't sign a piece of paper aren't worthy, or can't get hurt, or can't even get cheated on, and some nonsense about only people who sign papers can have 2 parent homes. Really, none of it makes any logical sense.

    I always assumed it was meant to cover controversial issues indirectly.

    Say a couple got married Christian, but then one converted.

    The state can't exactly come in and say "if you change your religion then you can be sued" because that would violate the 1st amendment.

    Of if a wife aborted a child and the husband was PL. The state can't come in and say "if you exorcize your right to medical privacy under RvW, then you can be sued."

    Kind of like a legal junk box where all the things the state can't directly regulate can be dealt with.

    I guess the best way to deal with easy divorce is to keep "irreconcilable differences" but mandate counseling, waiting periods, and similar.

    Care to explain why you would compare a breakup with infidelity?

    As far as I'm concerned infidelity (when the relationship was obviously understood to be manogamous) is an attack on the "cheated" spouse. There is no option there. With a "breakup" you merely go your separate ways for xx reason.

    You can try to justify it all you want, but I don't think I will ever be able to look at a breakup and cheating as the same thing.
