It's Not Divorce by Operation-Villainous It's Not Divorce by Operation-Villainous
This stamp is in response to "Tape It Back Together" by `yuumei and all of the comments that condemn divorce.

`yuumei has described how her life has been ruined because of her mother re-marrying a horrid beast of man with his equally horrid children, thus she blames divorce allowing it to happen in the first place.

The thing is, she says she was perfectly all right with the divorce - it was the re-marrying that she had a problem with.

So, logically, wouldn't you have a problem with hasty marriages that were originally founded on superficial reasons?

A lot of people are saying that divorce should be made illegal or at least really difficult to obtain if the reasons for divorce aren't because of infidelity or physical abuse because it's almost always a grueling, dragged out process that only serves to punish the children in the end.

By restricting access to divorce you are only attempting to cure the symptom and not the disease itself.

And the disease is irresponsible marriages.

Society teaches us at a very early age that marriage is the only thing that can make you truly happy in life - that if you're not married, you're not living up to all of the things life gives you.

Not only that, but the next one is having children. If you're not having children, then you're being selfish and you're choosing to miss out on the "beauty" of being a parent.

What I'm saying is: Don't blame divorce. Divorce is possibly the most responsible thing your parents could ever do after years of irresponsible, selfish, and uneducated decisions concerning their lives and your life.

To take away the option for them to get a divorce because they made a mistake and because it will make you unhappy is to only allow hatred and resentment to fester between them, thus only making it worse for everyone. If they're unhappy, why would you force them to stay together? To do so would be to take you selfish.

Instead of advocating against divorce when it's considered a Godsend to nearly 50% of all U.S. marriages, you should be advocating for proper education on marital and parental life so that people don't get married on a whim. And if people waited to get married (and have children), there would not be such a high demand for divorce.

I am child of divorced parent. I agree with this, my parent kinda rushed through marriage, I don't know why My mother when ahead with this marriage if she was heistant in first place. but only thing that I am glad about is they married in first place, because I exist and does my sister, otherwise, I hates them for marrying irresponsiblie My entire childhood is ruined by divorce.

According to her comics in general, her parents moved on from divorce and started to neglect her because she was a remnant of a failed marriage to them, to the point where they were emotionally abusive. If they had been together, they would have been miserable and probably only shown affection superficially. Parents that love their children don't suddenly hate them when they get a divorce. And I'm a very strong advocate of what you said, finding someone you can really love, and never forcing yourself to "settle". It's a waste of life.

Well said, O.V. And I think ending up getting divorced and irresponsible marriage is why some couples in my country have kids without getting actually married first. I think having kids without actually marrying the mommy or daddy first is A okay, as long has you've been with the mom or dad for a long time and you are both responsible enough to be parents, which I think is pre-martial sex done right. As for marrying another person...I think it is a step to fixing what made you break up with your previous lover...or a healthier love life. :)
