Kansas bill would abolish no-fault divorce (AP, February 8, 2014)
Posted by Orrin Judd at February 15, 2014 6:24 PMKansas residents seeking divorces would have to prove their spouse's culpability for the crumbling marriage under legislation that would abolish no-fault divorce in the state.Rep. Keith Esau, an Olathe Republican, introduced the measure removing "incompatibility'" as a valid reason for divorce. He said he offered it on behalf of a fellow lawmaker but supports its content."No-fault divorce gives people an easy out instead of working at it," Esau told The Wichita Eagle on Friday. "It would be my hope that they could work out their incompatibilities and learn to work together on things."
