Christ on a Cracker, if conservatives want to improve/save/protect marriage, they should impose a two year waiting list on marriage licenses not divorces. That would give people a chance to discover if they're getting into a bad marriage in the first place. And do all that marriage counseling/communication training at the beginning, not at the end when it's too late. By the time most people get around to filing for divorce, the marriage is beyond saving.
