"In a marriage, where vows are ignored and broken, divorce is the most peaceful solution." But not the right one. The right solution is for the two parties to come to terms with differences and reconcile for the good of the children and/or the society. That may require one or both parties to admit wrongdoing. That may take some serious pride-swallowing. But it is the better alternative to divorce, hands-down. Saying, "We've just grown apart," is no excuse -- your vows don't permit you to grow as individuals in ways that detract from your growth together as a union. The sooner people again view marriage as a promise to do right by each other no matter what, despite their feeling, the better.

Michael,

Dr Williams made it clear that the situation involving divorce being the most peaceful way was when one or both parties had NO INTENTION of keeping their vows.

That means that there is no reconciliation or coming to terms. There is no viewing the marriage as a promise to do the right thing.

I would say you are incorrect. If one or both parties have no desire to keep their vows, then divorce IS the right decision. You may not like it, but it is the right decision.

As an aside, most divorces are caused by one party, not both parties. One party is irresponsible and the other party has no choice. It is the same with America. The liberals cannot survive on their own. The only solution is to segregate the liberals and let them implode--much like a divorce. If the Federal government was smaller individual states could solve the problem and some of them would go out of existence which is the answer.

Charles,

It might be true that most divorces are caused by one party, but I am not certain.

It seems in this age and culture, that when couples get married for self-fulfillment reasons or love being the primary force, then divorce could be initiated by both and agreed to by both. Many times one party may show bad feelings first, then the other party realizes that the marriage may or may not be worth saving and the two come to a mutual decision.

In this age of marrying and committing for reasons of the heart, thank goodness for no-fault divorce. It is essential.
For decades, it has been obvious that there are irreconcilable differences between Americans who want to control the lives of others and those who wish to be left alone. Which is the more peaceful solution: Americans using the brute force of government to beat liberty-minded people into submission or simply parting company? In a marriage, where vows are ignored and broken, divorce is the most peaceful solution. Similarly, our constitutional and human rights have been increasingly violated by a government instituted to protect them. Americans who support constitutional abrogation have no intention of mending their ways.

Since Barack Obama's re-election, hundreds...
