Protect Marriage, Protect Children, Prohibit Divorce

Success begets success, and indeed the joyous outcome of California’s Prop 8 a week ago has inspired a “A Petition for a California State Proposition that Prohibits Divorce Between Heterosexual Married Couples”:

Divorce destroys the sanctity of marriage and its powerful influence on the betterment of society. 


This proposition would keep the very meaning of marriage from being transformed into nothing more than a contractual relationship between two adults.  Prohibiting divorce between heterosexual married couples will keep the interests of children and families intact.  We will continue to celebrate marriage as the union of husband and wife, not as a relationship between "Party A" and "Party B." 


The marriage of a man and a woman has been at the heart of society since the beginning of time and it promotes the ideal opportunity for children to be raised by a mother and a father in a family held together by the legal, communal, and spiritual bonds of marriage.  As a society we should put the best interests of children first, and those interests lie in traditional marriage. 


Permitting divorce destroys marriage as we know it and causes a profound harm to society.  We should be restoring marriage, not undermining it.

And for those of you who voted yes on Prop 8 but disagree with this petition...Why?  This petition is copied and pasted from literature from your website,, but applied to Divorce instead of Gay Marriage.  So how can you argue with your own words?

Thank you Jamie. It really interests me how the video flows exactly with the small change from "gay marriage" to "heterosexual divorce". But hey, we all have to protect the sanctity of the contract called marriage....

This is not an ideal world we live in. Infidelity, spousal abuse, and child molestation,just to name a few,occur in many marriages.Prohibiting divorce is a ridiculous idea.

candy, of course prohibiting divorce is a ridiculous idea--just as ridiculous as keeping two consenting, committed adults from being allowed to express their love with marriage. the ridiculous-ness is the whole point.

I would vote yes on this! In the Asian culture, divorce is a stigma, therefore in the UNITED STATES, it should not only be a stigma but should be a law that divorce cannot happen! 100% supporter of banning divorce!
