You believe the divorce rate will rise. Of course it will! Because people like me who have not lived with their spouse for several years will finally be able to get out of a bad marriage. And it seems you are saying that only the "cheating spouse" will be the one to file divorce under the new law. That is untrue. I never cheated on my husband, and have not been in a relationship since I was able to escape the marriage, however he has had several extra-marital affairs, during and after our split.
Some children are harmed more by divorce than others. However, all children
will be harmed by a divorce. The things that parents do and dont do will
greatly impact exactly how much a child is harmed by the divorce. In
addition, the childs gender, age, psychological health, and maturity will
also all affect how a divorce impacts a child.

The rights of fathers are a frequently overlooked part of divorce. This is unfortunate because currently, divorce (especially unilateral no-fault divorce) is largely used against men. In Stevenson’s words, “On balance, unilateral divorce favors those who most want out of the marriage, which more often than not are women.” Women are more likely to be worse off economically as a result of divorce. But men are more likely to be the disadvantaged party protesting the divorce.
Male bonding: the Pearson household wanted trolley service (GETTY)
My parents have been divorced since I was three. I'm now 15. I don't get to see my dad more than once every couple years, if I'm lucky. One time being with my dad I was riding a four-wheeler and fell off; I broke my arm. The next day I went home without my mom knowing this had happened. When she found out she was really mad at my dad. Back then they were always fighting. I was sick of it. I would get really upset and lock myself in my room. Now she has a boyfriend.. She has had many boyfriends.. But to my point, Divorce hurts a kid if they don't get to see both parents..and they don't wanna see either of them if they fight or when they fight. If you don't get along and happen to get married please, DONT HAVE KIDS! you will make them miserable.
