You may wonder why there’s so much information here on my Divorce and Family Law Blog about this state or that considering covenant marriage bills. The reason is that this is a trend. It’s real, it’s continuing, it strikes a chord with voters concerned about the breakdown of family values, and it’s going to bring about change (at least in the law) in many states. Here’s the latest, what looks like an editorial in the Leaf Chronicle from Clarksville, TN.
It caught my attention because my bride grew up in Clarksville. The gist of the article/editorial is that Tennessee is poised to debate a covenant marriage bill, that it will be appealing to many Tennessee voters and will probably pass, and that it won’t accomplish much to change the marriage rate or the divorce rate in Tennessee. I agree on all counts.
