Do you think this is a good thing?

Oklahoma state rep Sally Kern

Momlogic's Julie: Oklahoma state Rep. Sally Kern is at it again.

A while back, she said that homosexuals are a bigger threat to this nation than terrorists. Now she wants to outlaw divorce on the grounds of incompatibility in her state!

Under the republican's legislation, reports KOCO, a judge in Oklahoma would not be able to grant a divorce on the grounds of incompatibility if the couple has a child, the marriage has lasted longer than 10 years, or either party objects to the breakup.

Under her bill, Kern said, couples would still be able to get divorced on the grounds of adultery, abandonment, and neglect of duty.

I'm from Oklahoma, and this really disturbs me. I hate the idea that "Big Brother" could tell me that I cannot get a divorce even if I want one. Kern says she is doing this for "the children." But I don't think forcing two parents who hate each other to stay together would be good for the children one bit.

Do you think that this divorce ban is a good idea ... or is it just plain nuts?

EVERYONE HERE AGAINST THIS, thinking of divorce, separated, already divorced, PLEASE READ THIS BOOK: “Between Two Worlds, The Inner Lives of Children Of Divorce” by Elizabeth Marquardt. It’s real accounts from the first generation of men and women from the start of prolific divorce [70’s], now grown. At the very least you will understand what divorce actually does to these kids. All the “happy talk” we’ve been fed about divorce just isn’t true!
