Declaration of Opposition to No-Fault Divorce

Declaration of Opposition to No-Fault Divorce

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for couples to affirm the foundational principles upon which their union is forged, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to such a solemn affirmation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that when a man and a woman unite in the sacred bond of matrimony, they inherently pledge mutual fidelity, support, and undying commitment to each other and to their progeny. That to secure these ends, institutions like marriage are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, from the vows spoken before witnesses, and from the sacred promise to each other.

Yet, history has shown that certain laws, notably those of no-fault divorce, have systematically and ruthlessly eroded these fundamental principles. These laws, under the guise of progress and simplicity, have perpetrated numerous injustices against faithful spouses and innocent children, thereby undermining the sanctity and stability of the family.

The Grievances

Therefore, let facts be submitted to a candid world:

  • No-fault divorce laws have absolved the guilty of accountability, allowing spouses to abandon their marital obligations without cause, consequence, or the consent of their partners.
  • They have sanctioned the robbery of shared assets accumulated through years of joint effort, often leaving the faithful spouse in financial distress.
  • They have permitted an easy escape from the solemn promises made at the altar, thus promoting a culture of disposability and transience over perseverance and dedication.
  • They have empowered the state and its courts to sever the bonds of matrimony without due consideration of the moral and emotional detriment to the children and faithful spouse.
  • They have fostered a legal atmosphere where deceit and manipulation are rewarded, emboldening dishonest spouses to engage in fraudulent and malicious activities during divorce proceedings.
  • Judges and lawyers have profited from the miseries of broken families, incentivized by a system that feeds on prolonged legal battles over custody and assets.
  • The state, by enacting and enforcing such laws, has displayed contempt for the commitments of marriage, showing cowardice in its refusal to uphold the virtues of marital fidelity and integrity.

Our Solemn Affirmation

In every stage of these oppressions, we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms. Our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A state, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to rule over those who value the sanctity of marriage.

We, therefore, the undersigned, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, solemnly publish and declare:

  • That we enter into marriage with no recognition of, or respect for, any law that purports to dissolve our sacred union through no-fault divorce.
  • That we utterly reject the premise that any government possesses the legitimate authority to sever a marital bond on grounds as trivial as incompatibility or irreconcilable differences, absent any fault or mutual consent.
  • That we commit to defending our marital union against the injustices wrought by such laws, pledging to each other our mutual respect, fidelity, and unwavering support.
  • That we believe in and affirm the necessity of entering into marriage with the full intent to uphold every vow made, recognizing this commitment as binding, sacred, and not to be broken by the whims of personal discontent or external coercion.
  • That we regard the imposition of no-fault divorce laws as an affront to our moral convictions and an insult to the covenant of marriage, one that no honorable nation should uphold or enforce.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
