From Godspy via Being! or Nothingness is an interval with Bai MacFarlane on the subject of no-fault divorce. No-fault divorce was probably the most damaging idea to be foisted upon the family in the 20th century. It was presented as a minor change in the law that would in no way damage marriage or lead to more divorce. Does this argument sound familiar? Maggie Gallagher correctly says that the "more accurate term would be unilateral divorce on demand. It is also no surprise that no-fault divorce started in the sixties in California. Then California Governor Edmund Brown established a commission to make “a concentrated assault on the high incidence of divorce in our society and its often tragic consequences.” and as a result ended in the passing of no-fault divorce laws and divorce rates going through the roof. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. It must be quite comfortable to drive on the road to Hell since it has been repaved so many times.
