I don't oppose no fault divorce. Speaking as someone who has parents that are divorced, looking back at their marriage, I can honestly say that they were both better off for the divorce. Granted, it was a very unique set of circumstances that caused them to separate and then divorce (he came out as trans, which took a toll on her mental state and triggered a brief affair on her part), but even before those circumstances they got into many big fights and looking back I can't help but think for the 4-5 years prior to the events that triggered their separation and eventual divorce, they were in it "for the kids." Not to mention, the time after their divorce just showed how different they really are as people. Did they try to make it work? Yes, but in the end it didn't. Do they still care for each other? Yes, they're still friends to this day, they're just too different to be more than that. Was it rough for me to go through everything they went through? Yes, even though I wasn't a young child, I was 16 when they separated, it was rough, but on balance my family was better off for it in the long run.

My Grandparents were married for over 50 years, they largely only stayed together "for the kids" and because they were relatively old school catholics. They were miserable and I didn't want my parents to end up the same way and am glad they didn't, nor would I want anyone else to end up that way.

I also think it's quite disturbing that so many Republicans on this forum, who on average are more moderate than non atlas Republicans, support "forcing people to remain married against their will" because that tells me a huge number of non atlas Republicans support that and worse.
