Are you a parent heading for divorce? A Colorado state senator wants to make it a law that you must get counseling and go through a waiting period before you’re allowed to file.
The Denver Post reports Republican Senator Kevin Lundberg remains positive that his bill will be met with enthusiasm despite the fact that he says he didn’t realize a similar measure, proposed 10 years ago and known as the “Dr. Laura” bill, never saw the light of day.
“We have made it just too easy to bail out of a marriage,” Lundberg tells the newspaper, adding that his bill would give an out when domestic violence or sexual abuse is involved.
Coalition for Divorce Reform chairman Chris Gersten tells the Post he thinks similar bills will be considered in at least six other states.
