Sex Bill To Be Discussed

Maryland Legislators Discuss Sex In Divorce

Montgomery County Delegate Luiz Simmons has introduced legislation (HB 336) to allow divorcing couples to waive the current physical separation requirement as long as they don’t have sex.

The reason behind this is that many couples are finding it difficult to financially divorce and support two households. This legislation would allow a couple to testify that they have not had sex in the past year to be granted a divorce.

Is this a good thing? Is big brother moving into your bedroom? Does this open the door to divorce fraud?

Realistically, with the divorce rates hovering at 50%, it makes more sense to look towards legislation that discourages divorce. Right now, it seems that marriages are temporary and the laws support that notion.

What do you think? Good idea for this new law? Or a dog?

    We must protect the sanctity of marriage! It’s why gay people are not allowed to marry. When people get married they take vows to stay together until death. If they’re too broke to move out then they should be forced to stay together. Not only will it lead to divorce fraud, it will also lead to social services fraud. A couple down on their luck but over the income level to qualify for social services could easily divorce and then be under the levels while still living together as a married couple.

    (the gay marriage thing was sarcasm … I cannot help but to laugh about the fact that gay people cannot be married in order to protect to institution when half of all current marriages fail)
