House Bill 1254 would remove irreconcilable differences as legal grounds for divorce in South Dakota. 

Atttacks on no-fault divorce are dangerous.

The ACLU of South Dakota opposes House Bill 1254. The motivation behind this bill is fueled by a desire to rewrite society to fit within conservative faith-based family values; where one man and one woman marry, have children, and remain married until death. While this is a lifepath that many people choose, it’s also a vision that leaves little room for the complexities we face in our ever-changing world and the various ways these complexities impact our lives.

This simply isn’t the way things shake out for everyone.
