Another day, another end of a marriage splattered across your Facebook news feed. So-and-so is listed as single, you’re alerted. And so, another one bites the dust.

The Institute of Marriage and Family Canadawrote a report which says divorce proceedings aren’t complicated enough. Their specific issue is with no-fault divorce.
The author, Andrea Mrozek, was reported in Huffington Post Canada as saying that under current laws, one person can decide to get divorced for “no reason at all” two weeks into their marriage or simply initiate proceedings by moving out.
