I think I'm finally ready for the lifelong commitment of marriage now that no-fault divorce is legal here


No-fault divorces officially took effect in New York yesterday, finally giving New Yorkers the same right as the rest of America to end a marriage just for the hell of it. The new law lets spouses unhitch simply by declaring the marriage irrevocably broken, providing an alternative to the state's longtime "fault" system, where one party had to take the blame for adultery, abandonment or cruel and inhuman treatment. So all of New York's commitment-phobic singles can all finally exhale and plan for their first marriage.
