Is It The End Of The No-Fault Divorce?

It might be in Iowa. Iowa legislators are pushing for the obliteration of the no-fault divorce, forcing married couples with children under the age of 18 to remain married. Their reasoning: Children will be spared the emotional struggles of divorce. Opposers argue against it, claiming children suffer because of their parent’s inability to remain civil during the divorce process, not from the divorce itself.

If passed, married couples with children would only be granted divorce, if and when a woman or man is able to provide proof their spouse was responsible for the failure of their marriage. Allegations of domestic violence, felony, adultery or abandonment, with a minimum of two years, would have to be sustained with hard proof for court approval.

In the state of Texas, you are more than welcomed to file a no-fault divorce, avoiding the mess and troubles of having to prove your spouse is guilty of adultery, physical abuse or abandonment. It’s a whole another rodeo out here.
