A California-based institute that seeks to curb the breakdown of families has thrown its support towards a bill in Texas that seeks to end the state’s “no fault divorce” policy.

The Ruth Institute and its president, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, have declared their backing of Representative Matt Krause of Fort Worth’s recently introduced bill.

This includes an online petition posted to citizengo.org which has gotten as of Wednesday afternoon over 300 signatures.

“Under no-fault divorce, the law sides with whoever wants the marriage the least, even when the other person wants to keep the family together,” reads the petition.

“The proposed bill requires both spouses to agree to the divorce or to demonstrate fault, such as infidelity, abuse, felony, or abandonment.”

In an interview with The Christian Post, Dr. Morse explained that her organization came to support the bill because its fits with their agenda to help prevent family breakdown.

“We have seen too many people who are still suffering from their parents’ divorces, even when the divorce was 40 years ago,” explained Morse.

“We have also seen many people who are reluctantly divorced: they wanted to stay married. They did not realize that the government takes sides with the person who wants the marriage the least. That is what no-fault means in practice.”
