We’re from the Government, We’re Here to End Your Marriage.” - Touchstone

Most Americans would be deeply shocked if they knew what goes on today under the name of divorce. Indeed, many are devastated to discover that they can be forced into divorce by procedures entirely beyond their control. Divorce licenses unprecedented government intrusion into family life, including the power to sunder families, seize children, loot family wealth, and incarcerate parents without trial. Comprised of family courts and vast, federally funded social services bureaucracies that wield what amount to police powers, the divorce machinery has become the most predatory and repressive sector of government ever created in the United States and is today’s greatest threat to constitutional freedom.

Unilateral Divorce

Some four decades ago, while few were paying attention, the Western world embarked on the boldest social experiment in its history. With no public discussion of the possible consequences, laws were enacted in virtually every jurisdiction that effectively ended marriage as a legal contract. Today it is not possible to form a binding agreement to create a family. The government can now, at the request of one spouse, simply dissolve a marriage over the objection of the other. Maggie Gallagher aptly titled her 1996 book The Abolition of Marriage.(end excerpt)

While my view is rather extreme, more and more men are beginning to share it. Don't marry in America. Just don't do it. It is tempting when you are young and your hormones are raging in your system. But American marriages are not successful. More often than not they fail and this article goes into some of the reasons why. I am not anti-marriage. I am against the laws that have turned marriage into a legal way to steal a persons kids and wealth using a marriage license as the tool.

The Apostle Paul had the right idea, despite how people today take to denigrating him, I say his is right. Simply put, he said that it is better not to marry.
