This is also known as “no fault divorce.” It is commonly viewed as expansion of liberty. It is very common for divorced adults to behave as is if they no longer […]

I just came across this article, written by a young adult whose parents divorced when she was 16. Her name is Talia Kollek. She is defending divorce and advocating for more divorces. I wanted to post this as a comment under her article, but for some reason I didn’t have the heart. So instead I’ll […]

If I decided to follow in the footsteps of my brothers & go see the almost-chosen people inhabiting America, & then purloin a pack of cigarettes, I am advised, the police would be involved, & given my stiff-neckedness, I would end up visiting the correctional facilities afforded by your great nation–this is after all, not […]

I found this advertisement and took a screenshot. What do you think about it? I find it appalling. Here’s a divorce lawyer inciting spouses to be combative during a divorce. Profane, vulgar, immoral, opportunistic, exploitive… just a few words that come to mind as I think about the message here. Generally speaking, it’s fair to […]

No fault divorce changed the civil understanding of the spousal bond, and it lowered the barrier for judicial involvement in the minutiae of family life. Now judges are meddling in the details of family life and no cause is required to be shown in order to commence this meddling. A legally innocent spouse can be […]

Since an essential public purpose of civil marriage in the United States has been to attach mothers and fathers to their children and to one another, and since this essential purpose is being overwritten and therefore discarded due to gender neutral marriage and parenting laws, I propose the following: To establish civil unions that are […]

I don’t understand. Since they believe that SSM is good for the family structure, I can’t understand why they don’t want to trade childhoods with me. You see, it’s very easy for me to imagine my childhood under the SSM regime. I wasn’t raised in a same sex household, but SSM impacts the family structure […]

As you all know, there is a divide between conservatives and libertarians. I am wondering if one of the reasons is that conservatives and libertarians define “limited government” differently. What do you think? Do we? I raised this issue on my recent post, but thought it deserved it’s own post since, if there is a […]
