Divorce Court

Here's some good news from creative judges. In Kansas City, divorced parents may now be required to attend classes or participate in counseling to help them get along post-divorce for the sake of the children. Which makes me wonder about all those people who scoff at staying married for the sake of the children or who talk about how much better life will be post-divorce for children whose parents are in high conflict marriages. Yes, high conflict marriages are hard on kids, but who's to say that those same parents will suddenly get along once they're not married? And who's to say that people who can't stay married for the sake of the children will cooperate as parents after a divorce?
