Representative Matt Krause, in Texas, introduced a bill to eliminate unilateral no-fault divorce.
With no-fault divorce, the petitioning spouse can invoke the power of the state’s court to take children and property from the other spouse, even though the other spouse has done nothing grave justifying separation of spouses. If Krause’ bill becomes law, only if both parties want a divorce could the no-fault divorce Courts take over a family.
If “sure-win” state sponsored divorce was eliminated, some spouses would choose to work on improving their marriage rather than forcing divorce on their family. For those who insist on abandoning their marriage, eliminating unilateral no-fault divorce could minimize the damage caused to the other spouse.
Sec. 6.001. INSUPPORTABILITY. On the petition of either party to a marriage, the court may grant a divorce without regard to fault if both parties to the marriage agree that the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities that destroys the legitimate ends of the marital relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.
Matt Krause was born in Tyler, TX, where his father was a youth pastor at Green Acres Baptist Church. He is a constitutional attorney, college professor of American history and government, and public speaker on America’s Founding Fathers with WallBuilders.
