Lesson 1 - Marriage As A Contract

Guest Author - Sadiyya Patel

Getting married is like entering into a contract. But it’s a very easy contract to break. Divorce has made it easy for husband and wife to call it quits when they go through an unhappy period in their marriage.

John Crouch, who is the Executive Director of Americans for Divorce Reform, says that the most important economic contract of our lives – marriage – is no longer legally protected.

Just think about it. Lawyers will fight tooth and nail to protect corporations in their contract relations or between you and your landlord, your mechanic and your doctor, but they do nothing to prevent you from breaking up with your spouse. In fact, many greedy, unscrupulous lawyers will even encourage you to file for divorce and then discuss division of assets as the next logical step.

Crouch says that marriage is the only contract that anyone can break, at any time, and not be held responsible for it.

Crouch goes on to say “So getting married in America is like doing business in Russia. Everything is up for grabs, everything is constantly renegotiated, and nobody has to keep their word. I think that makes for a lot of unhappy marriages.”
