No-fault divorce with kids involved is narcissistic hedonism. Make parents demonstrate good cause or wait until the kids are grown up.

All the reasons stated by the red avatars in this thread are precisely why I support no-fault divorce when there are not minor children involved. That changes when minor children are involved. Minors lack both the rights and the corresponding responsibilities of adults, are not fully independent moral agents (and at a young age are hardly moral agents at all), and do not have the ability to provide for themselves independently. Adults have the ability to meaninfully improve their life situation through their own actions. Children do not. Thus it is incumbent upon the adults in their lives to make decisions that are in the best interests of the children. It is demonstrably very bad for the children involved for the parents to divorce without good cause. Thus, the state should restrict divorces involving minor children by requiring demonstration of good cause. I do not care one whit about religious beliefs about a "contract with God" or anything along those lines. My reasoning is entirely secular and is the natural conclusion when you value the well-being of the children over the desires of the parents. Rights come with responsibilities, and marriage is no exception.
