Iowa Republicans Want To Limit DivorcePosted by Phil Ferguson on March 5th, 2013 – 5 Comments – Posted in Uncategorized
In their war on big government 7 Iowa Republicans want to give the government more power over your life.
The new bill would prohibit parents with children under 18 years old from getting what’s called “no fault” divorces, a divorce that doesn’t require any evidence of wrongdoing from either party. Essentially, it would eliminate the classic “irreconcilable differences” excuse.
You can’t stand each other – tough! Rep Tedd Gassman (Right – no I did not make up the name!) wants you to stay together!
Under the new bill, divorces would only be granted if one parent was guilty of adultery, was sent to prison, was physically or sexually abusive, or if one had abandoned the family for over a year.
So, to get out of your marriage you have to go fuck someone. Ha! Problem solved. Maybe you could just say that you did or, will there be an adultery test? Mr. Gassman explains why….
“My attempt with this bill is to keep families together to keep moms and dad in the same homes with their children and to have those children raised by a mom and a dad…”
What a sweet little fantasy world Mr. Gassman lives in. Two people who can’t stand each other being forced to stay together and stay in the same home (will that part of the law?) – what could go wrong with that.
Apparently, he wants to promote this law because his own daughter just got divorced and he is worried about his granddaughter turning into some kind of sex crazed slut!
“There’s a 16-year-old girl in this whole mix now. Guess what? What are the possibilities of her being more promiscuous?”
“What are the possibilities of all these other things surrounding her life that a 16-year-old girl, with hormones raging, can get herself into?”
I’m sure there are some kids that go “wild” after their parents divorce but, some kids have problems with two parents. However, forcing the adults to stay together is not likely to help and it is just wrong!
