    It now takes at least 60 days to finalize a divorce in Texas. Across the country, waiting periods range from 30 days in Alabama to up to two years in Maryland, if one spouse contests the divorce
    I think this is the issue. If I'm reading the proposal right (and I may not be) the two year wait is only if one spouse contests. I don't have a problem with that.

    In Pennsylvania it's 90 days if it's consensual, 2 years if one contests (possibly shorter if it is a fault divorce and you want to spend the ridiculous money to prosecute that....99% do not, for various reasons).

    I'm seeing the economy improving in Reno very soon!

    I think it should be a two year wait BEFORE marriage. As for a class or counseling, that is only effective if BOTH parties are willing to make some changes and work on it...otherwise one of them stomps out and refuses to go back and blames the other person for the whole situation any one..not that I am bitter or anything :D
    I smile because I don't know what the heck is going on.

    I don't know. What about getting rid of the concept of marriage altogether which, in many ways, dates back to a period wherein women were financially dependent upon men.

    I don't think I'm allowed to comment on the sacred nature of marriage anymore but I would have an opinion if I could!:p

    I am not willing to give up on the sacred bonds of marriage until after I find that terminally ill impotent 95 year old millionaire with no children who marries me and leaves his entire estate to me...
    Marriage is a sacred institution by darn!

    Because women have children and children need two parents. Serial lovers aren't committed parents.

    Serial lovers, whether they be men or women, probably should not have children.
