Groups Aims to Lower Divorce Rate

February 3rd, 2009 by flanews

A group that successfully pushed a gay marriage ban into the state constitution is now taking aim at divorce.

More couples get divorced in Florida than in any other state. The Florida Family Policy Council wants to change the no fault divorce law to make it harder for couples with kids to separate. They also want to provide incentives for couples to take extra premarital counseling. President of the Florida Family Policy Council John Stemberger said reducing divorce will solve many problems the state faces.

When you strengthen marriages and families you are simultaneously solving, you cant name a domestic issue youre not directly solving by directly strengthening marriage and families: Crime, education, poverty, business productivity, welfare, abortion, said Stemberger.

The group says cutting divorces by 10 percent statewide could save taxpayers 100 million dollars a year by reducing the need for state and federal welfare programs.
