Bill would put parents' divorces on hold
A new bill before the Alabama Legislature requires a waiting period of 365 days before a divorce becomes final if the divorcing couple has children younger than 18.
Under existing law, a court can make a divorce final 30 days after filing, said Sen. Hank Erwin, the bill's sponsor. Erwin, R-Montevallo, believes the extra time will open the door to more counseling and opportunities for reconciliation.
Erwin understands the bill's chances for passage are slim for this session, but he wants to get the dialogue started on how to make more marriages last.
There isn't anyone in the Alabama Senate that I dislike more than Hank Erwin. Dislike isn't nearly a strong enough word....so let me explain. When good ol' Hank is called home to meet his maker I hope he goes out by getting hit by a Greyhound bus full of homosexuals on their way to gamble in New Orleans. Any questions?
Hank seems to think it is his 'christian duty' to abolish a woman's right to choose, ban tax-paying, law-abiding, gay citizens from getting married and now the Christian death-cult buffoon wants to regulate how long straight couples with children under 18 have to wait before they can divorce.
What BUSINESS is it of Hank Erwin's or the Alabama legislature if a couple with children decide to sever the knot?
The government should NEVER BE GIVEN THE POWER to REGUALTE MARRIAGE or DIVORCE! It is NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS. These are PRIVATE FAMILY MATTERS!!!
Hank Erwin's 'War on Divorce' will probably go about as well as the government's war on poverty and war on drugs has gone.....which means that in a year people won't even be getting married anymore and they will just shack up instead. Now, wouldn't that be poetic justice?
I wish someone would introduce a bill that would ban Hank Erwin from introducing bills that seek to regulate and exert government control over private family matters that are NONE OF HIS BUSINESS. Hell, let's go one step further and just ban this jackass from initroducing any bill of any kind whatsoever. We'll all be much safer.
