Please keep the North Carolina Senate in your prayers. Seantors Austin Allran and Warren Daniel have introduced Senate Bill 518, The Healthy Marriage Act. It would extend to two years the current one-year waiting period in order for a divorce to be finalized. During that time, the couple would have to complete courses on improving their communications skills and conflict resolution. If the couple has children, they would have to take at least a four-hour class on the impact of divorce on children. Imagine where this country would be if we had more bills such as this introduced in every state.
