A column on the MacFarlane Divorce

The Fact Is Home Page: "You see it isn't enough for the state to decide that no one is at fault in a divorce, although it is manifestly obvious even to a four-year-old when one spouse is the perpetrator and the other the victim, the state demands that the adults lie to the children. This is supposed to be in the best interests of the children. But is lying to children ever in their best interests? Isn't it better to let them speak about what they see? Should they be forced to go along with the legal fiction of no-fault divorce?
The judge made it clear in her decision that in spite of Mr. Macfarlane's multiple defects he was awarded custody, because of Mrs. Macfarlane's was unwilling to compromise. According to the judge: 'The court has great concern with Mrs. Macfarlane's acceptance of this divorce . . . As Mrs. Macfarlane testified at trial 'two homes is not a home.' How unfortunate for her children that she has this attitude. Her marriage is not going to be saved no matter what she wants. She has to realize it and get beyond this for her children's sake.'
Mrs. Macfarlane knows she can't force her husband to return, all she has left is the truth and that is what the court demands she surrender. The court doesn't care that there is a massive body of research supporting her belief that 'two homes is not a home.' She must think what the court tells her to think. "
