The alternative is to force people who are selfish to stay together in the same house and make each other and the children miserable.<quoted text>
The truth is: most divorces are not the scenario you described above. I ain't kidding, every divorce I've seen is the result of the selfishness of one or both spouses.
Would that be your law to uphold???
People can't be forced to feel what they don't feel.
That is ridiculous.
And keep in mind that the men in your church that made those rules are NOT married.
Shysters in god-garb!
