And I have no idea what the hell you're talking about,but I've noticed that pretty much sums up every off topic post you've made for the last 14 hours you've been on this thread. Maybe you and Randy shouldn't hit the sauce so hard during the day and you may make more sense posting. Have you ever thought about getting some psychological help for your obsession? Again who the hell is bill? LOL

Correct, like these simple facts about KiMare, from his own public Google blog:
http://watchmann.blogspot.com/search...
Gregory Dale Kirschmann
gregorykirschmann@yahoo.com
Married 36 years, two sons, and one Schnauzer.
Resides in Dillsburg PA effective 2011
Previously Greenville TN effective 2005
Previously Holualoa, Hawaii
These are facts he posted about himself. If you do a Google search you will see more interesting facts about KiMare.
Be careful what you post about yourself online. And then there are those pesky public records when you buy property or there is a UCC filing.

You're a real creep and you take this stuff way too seriously.

Actually, they signed up to get an education and a job, with the knowledge that they might be called on to die defending people like you, who would love to deny them, and their families, the same basic civil rights and benefits under the law that everyone else enjoys.
That says a lot about them, and, sadly, a lot about you.
Cool story.

Yes you are.
Your goal is for people to stay married regardless of how miserable, how abusive and how much they are damaging their children.
My goal is for strong marriages with people happy to be married, who work on their relationships and work together for the benefit of their children.
It is just a difference in goals
No fault divorce helps to achieve my goal, your goal is supported by law forcing people to stay married
Your position was the claim of no fault divorce proponents. The historical result does not support that claim. Even you have noted the sad state if marriage and family that resulted.

You are looking at it backwards, No fault divorce has strengthened marriage, instead of being forced to stay married, people married today are because they actually want to be married.
People could divorce before, take away the "fault", undermined marriage.
People work on their marriages instead of depending on the law to force their partners to stay with them.
Uhhhhh....huh.....so why the need for "no fault" divorce? People could still divorce, but there had to be legitimate grounds.
No fault divorce is the best thing to happen to marriage.
Oh Madone!
Yes there are more divorces but that is the wrong statistic to look at, those are people that should not be married to one another, unhappy marriages.
Instead, lets look at all the broken homes, of all the children whose parents are no longer together, that might have stayed together, and worked things out for the good of everyone, but had an easy out thanks to the state.
People who stay married today work for their marriages, because they are no longer using the crutch of law to keep them that way
.
Why have the state involved at all then? No crutch at all.

Look at it another way
People married today, WANT to be married to who they are married to, have stronger working marriages.
Because if they are not happy, changing the marital situation is very easy.
that is a good thing.
The reality is that relationships have ups and downs. Couples that weather those changes end up the healthiest relationships in society. Those that bail end up at the other end with any children joining the devastation.

The easy way is usually not the way.

That's right. So why do you oppose equality for polygamists?

No, no, and no. The goal is not to divorce for trivial reasons, or because there's a rough patch in road. Why do u insist people divorce on a whim?]
My goal is for strong marriages with people happy to be married, who work on their relationships and work together for the benefit of their children.
Yet u argue for people to abandon their marriages and families for trivial reasons, to not ride out the rough seas so to speak.
No fault divorce helps to achieve my goal, your goal is supported by law forcing people to stay married
What goal is that? More divorces, more children growing up in broken homes? You should be so proud.

Yes they do, including my own, but our love and respect for one another, and the knowledge that divorce was a very real and very easy option helped us to overcome our difficulties, and decide that we wanted to remain with one another. It strengthened our marriage, and our working on our relationship as a priority instead of depending on a law that re-forges wedding rings into handcuffs, benefited ourselves, our marriage and our children.

no fault divorce strengthened the marriages of people that actually should be married to one another. Makes their relationship a priority in their lives without the crutch of law.

You are looking at the wrong results, you should be looking at how people now work on their relationships, are married to one another because they want to be, not forced by law.

Divorce numbers mean nothing, you should be looking at people that stay married because they want to be married and work together on their relationships, that has increased dramatically.

So you're saying you stayed married despite no fault divorce. Real proud of you! But that's not an argument for no fault divorce.

No I am saying that the ease of divorce means that people in abusive relationships do not need to stay married, and people in good relationships work more activly to strengthen thier relationships.

That is a good thing, more poeple that are married today, are happy in thier relationships then before No fault divorce

that is a good thing

Using the crutch of law to keep people together does not make a better home for children, your are kidding yourself.

What makes a better home for children are parents that actively work on their marriages, that want to be together in a happy and stable family. Not just forced to be together by the crutch of law, but that actively work together to make a happy home.

You are looking at this whole thing backwards
