Why only for couples with minor children? If we're going to force couples to stay together until one of them commits adultery, abuses the other or packs up shop and leaves for good just because they have kids, let's make the couple that's been together for 50 years go through the same hoops. That'll be a great 18th birthday present for some kid, huh?
"Happy Birthday! Now that you're an adult, your mom and I are getting a divorce. Couldn't do it before because we were legally obliged to stay together until you were an adult. The last x years have been a complete fabrication, and we truly apologize for all the fighting you saw/heard over the last x years. Hopefully you understand the importance of family, and your mother and I feel better knowing the last x years will have no impact on your adult life, the way you approach relationships, or how you feel about us in any way whatsoever."
Better yet, if we're looking for ways to keep young girls from being "promiscuous" maybe we should outlaw hormones. Or mandate castration for young men who are in co-ed public schools. This bill does nothing to really keep families together or stop promiscuity. All it will do is make it so more and more couples delay getting married, have kids out of wedlock, and clog up the family courts even more with custody battles. #WayToGoIowa #Sarcasm
