  • This is indeed a sad situation, and unfortunately too frequent. Often, today, our no-fault divorce laws work against the faithful and strip all hope of justice or a potentially good life away from people going through an unwanted divorce. Sometimes this happens for good reason and a violent partner carries out treacherous acts at the time of separation, so there needs to be a way for victims of violence to get to safety. But, because there are so many advantages given to the one who reports abuse, it is often the abusive who file false allegations while the victims of violence don’t report it. In other words, we become so responsive to reporting that we become irresponsible and unfair and somewhat incompetent when it comes to discerning between real abuse and a false allegation that is done to gain a strategic advantage. So in the end, no violence is stopped and much is added as the victims of adultery, abuse, and false allegations despair of hope and take matters into their own hands violently. And then we read about it in the news how the neighbors and family are shocked that a person who had always been good hearted, kind, giving, and benevolent shocked them with uncharacteristic behavior committing murder and suicide, shooting a judge, an attorney, a social worker, tax collector, police officer, child support worker, other lover, and so on.

    But, perhaps the reason our divorce laws are so irresponsible and unfair to the faithful is that the faithful are usually less violent.

    This is unrelated, but the title of this article contains the word “than” rather than “then”.
