    We opened pandora box on this a long time ago.We took Equal rights as far as biology could take us.Turns out women are miserable when they arent dominated and many men are made unhappy by their freedom.

    People would bve much happier if they imbraced the animals within.
    The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.

    I'm not a lawyer, so I'm not very confident on this point, but my understanding is that judges quite often hold hearings to determine damages that result from violation of contract. Why would they do this if they are bound to restrict the damage award to what is specified in the contract?

    As for this being contrary to public policy, that a moot point in that this whole question is predicated upon the adoption of this measure being viewed by the public as something that does further the public interest.

Barring special circumstances a couple may divorce after 1 year of separation. In light of special circumstances (insanity, Adultery, abandonment) the contract may be dissolved in less than a year.

    No, both parties don't have to want a divorce in order for a divorce to happen. There may be "waiting periods" in certain states, sure. All states have different laws regarding the matter. But really, it's just a stupid legal thing. If I want out of a marriage, I'm just going to ****ing walk out the door. I'd like to see some state law stop me. I may still be technically legally married, but WTF difference does that make in the grand scheme of things when I move the **** out? Nothing. It's the relationship I want out of. The legal documentation is just a formality.

    But, what you cited merely says that in NC a couple must separate for a year, and then they can be granted a divorce - IF one party (for some absolutely insane reason) doesn't agree to the divorce. Which means that what I said previously is quite accurate.

    Maybe. So what if he did?

    2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.

    I agree! Then we can tell them what to think, and value. Would be easier for them not to have to think for themselves, right?
