And why don't conservatives have a huge problem with Williams v. North Carolina? Basically, if I lived in a state with a 2-3 year waiting period before a contested no-fault divorce could be granted against my wife's will, I could simply pack up and move to Nevada. After 6 weeks to obtain residency, I could file a no-fault divorce, and in as little as 10 days, have a Nevada Judge dissolve my marriage. Not even my original State's Courts or Legislature would have the power to stop it. In my original state and the other 48 States, the Courts would be COMPELLED to recognize me as divorced under Williams v. North Carolina. This is the best, greatest, and most beautiful example of State's rights and Federalism: Traveling to circumvent laws
