But heck, how about this? When minor children are present, grant a divorce if a court decides that divorce "is in the best interest of the children."

Those who are a part of the divorce culture would not approve of that limitation on their ability to get a divorce for any reason or no reason at all.

Does that appeal to you?

Much as it pains me to agree with you, as a divorced parent I would love to bring back "at fault" divorces. As a financially, physically and emotionally abused spouse, I would have got a whole lot more out of my divorce settlement for myself and my children if I'd been allowed to bring up these points in court. But here at least (not sure about the US) that isn't allowed.
