I would have no problem -- with a few exceptions -- in providing that parents of minor children can't divorce unless it is in the best interest of the children. (I do think they could live apart). The exceptions that I can think of off the top of my head are (1) domestic violence, (2) serious substance abuse and possibly and (3) possibly adultery at the option of the wronged party (i.e. not at the choice of the adulterer).

I think this is unworkable until/unless the law changed such that each party in a marriage was considered a separate financial entity during the marriage - no obligation to pay for the others debts or obligation to share any gain for that matter, while still allowing large untaxed gifts from one to the other. Seems pretty unlikely to me.

In other words, I'm pretty sure Patzer and Joel wouldn't agree with this LOL
