image for The Next Front in the GOP’s War on Women: No-Fault Divorce

“My then-wife decided that she didn’t want to be married anymore — and in the state of Texas, that is completely permitted.”.

It took more than four decades to end fault-based divorce in America: California was the first state to eliminate it, in 1969; New York didn’t come around until 2010.

(And there are caveats: Mississippi and South Dakota still only allow no-fault divorce if both parties agree to dissolve the marriage, for example.).

Legal structures such as No Fault Divorce, which divides families and empowers the state, should be replaced by a Fault-based Divorce.”

Crowder first complained about no-fault divorce in a segment last April, when his divorce proceedings were already underway.

“There need to be changes to marital laws, and I’m not even talking about same-sex marriage … I’m talking about divorce laws, talking about alimony laws, talking about child-support laws.”

Unnervingly, it wouldn’t necessarily take a vote of the Legislature to end no-fault divorce in Texas. »
