  • Yes.
    If two people are unhappy with their marriage or if someone is abusive, I don't see why they should be together.
    To me, it's just waste of time and life.

  • i don't really know that you can agree with divorce. agreement means that you are on the same page or hold the same opinion or belief

    i'm not in favor of divorce but i'm also not in favor of two unhappy people feeling like they HAVE to stay together. an unhappy marriage is an unhealthy marriage

  • Yes. My mother would probably have been dead long ago if her and my dad didn't separate.
    But even so, I can see she was unhappy with him and only stayed because of us.

    Even if you're not being cheated or divorced, yes get the divorce but next time please don't rush into it and don't settle.

  • No, when you marry someone you're supposed to marry them forever. Divorce shouldn't be an option for most married couples. Now I know someone will bring up instances of abuse and cheating, but most people aren't abused or cheated on. So overall no, divorce is not okay. If you aren't being abused and if you didn't get cheated on you have no reason to get divorced.

      This means if you don't love or even if you hate someone, you should make each other's life a living hell instead of ending it and living a happy life.

      Can you really be that rational about who you love?

    • 1mo

      @IWasCuriousNowImDead You can choose to love and choose to do the things that will incite romance. I'm sure for all of us there were points where our parents found it very hard to stomach us, or to play with us, or to be gentle with our feelings, or refrain from lashing out, or continue to sacrifice. While our parents aren't perfect neither are we, yet they chose each day to love us. Some people unfortunately don't have that, but most parents sacrifice for their kids, and love their kids. A marriage is the same way, it has to be nurtured.

  • If needed of course.

  • I think that ideally, you should try to stay in love with someone for the whole of your life but realistically, that isn't going to happen for everyone. I don't think you should continue to make your life and their life and the life of any children you have miserable by staying in a relationship that just doesn't work anymore.

  • If many people didn't enter marriage so unthoughtfully these days, there wouldn't be as many divorces.
    These days many people don't honor contracts anymore, and they started seeing marriages as financial contracts as well. I don't agree or disagree, but I don't wanna follow the same path.

  • I believe that there are situations where divorce is the only option. Marriage is a huge step, and I don't think it should be taken lightly. However, if the right to divorce someone was taken away, we would have far greater problems than someone just "marrying the wrong person."

  • Ideally, no. But, we do not live in an idyllic world. People fall out of love and I don't think there is any reason to be unhappy the rest of your life.

  • In the 1800s a woman was not allowed to divorce her husband unless he beat her with a stick that was thicker then his wrist. Divorce exists for a reason and even though there is room for abuse and unnecessary abandonment, it is necessary in some situations.

  • I wish people would make smart decisions before getting married but if they don't love each other or have someone else there's no point forcing them to be in a crappy destructive relationship. It'd be a lot easier if people wait before getting married and make sure they are ready for a commitment though then we could avoid this problem

      Omg, is it true that the divorce rate in America is up to 50%? If yes, it goes to show how risky getting married really is. Many people do not take it seriously, and that shows how amoral they are, and therefore how better it is to stay away from most people.

      Of course you can't help but over look their bad qualities.

      I am sorry, but in my head, I am going by the bible, and why we shouldn't divorce. I am trying to make my answer as modern as possible for you... 😅

What Guys Said 23

  • Divorce should be reserved for special circumstances like affairs, addiction and abuse.
    Nobody should stay with someone who cheats on them. Nobody should stay with someone who holds some substance in higher regard than their spouse. And nobody should stay with someone who abuses them.
    In all other cases of divorce the children are hurt more by divorce than anyone cares to admit.
    For those who approve divorce just to be happy . . . . . . remember you are devastating the life, security and happiness of your children and in-laws in your pursuit of happiness.

  • Of course I agree with divorce, if divorce didn't exist there'd be MANY unhappy marriages and women/men will have to be stuck in abusive relationships and people would ultimately cheat more.

    So under certain circumstances, yes.

  • Yes, I do agree with divorce, because there are cases where people drastically change. My sister ex-husband became a drunken after losing his job, and other than not moving at all to find a new one, he also become dangerous, menacing her all day long.
    What I'm against is people getting married without knowing each other at all, that's where the divorce become an "in handy" thing instead of a real institution.

  • Only when there exists an abusive relationship

    I think divorce is too easy nowadays, so many marriages in the USA end in divorce. People bail out when things get rough, or when romance dies out.
    Instead of helping their marriage grow and prosper.
    We need more commitment, and we need to teach about marriage and how to maintain healthy relationships

    There is so much sex education nowadays but not enough education on having healthy relationships
