AbstractRecently, William Galston, a professor at the University of Maryland School of Public Affairs, has proposed revising American divorce laws in a way designed to reduce the rate of divorce win families with dependent children. The chance would make it harder for couples with dependent children to obtain a divorce, getting rid of the "no fault" divorce in cases where only one spouse wants to end a marriage. Should this kind of law be adopted?
