South Carolina considers reduction in waiting time for divorce

The recently introduced bill would apply to ‘no fault divorces’, without allegations of desertion, drunkenness, adultery or abuse. It is currently before a committee in the South Carolina House of Representatives but has not yet been voted on.
“Tennessee has a rule called ‘irreconcilable differences.’ Georgia has ‘irretrievably broken.’ Florida has a 90-day timeframe for no-fault divorce. So when we’re talking about a no-fault divorce, where there’s no dispute, then it’s time to just take some action.”
“To me, that sends a message that, as a society, we’re not taking marriage as seriously. It should be harder to escape our responsibilities, not easier.”
