You’ve Got To Be Kidding ….
by An Ordinary Man (the novel)
An Ordinary Man does not have a political agenda so I am surprised to be posting political news, but this shouldn’t be ignored. According to today’s Boston.com, a state senator has filed a bill that, if passed, would make it illegal for a divorcing parent to have sex, or even a dating relationship, in the marital home until the divorce is final, unless a judge approves.
The senator is Senator Richard J. Ross, a Wrentham Republican, and his proposed law reads:
In divorce, separation, or 209A proceedings involving children and a marital home, the party remaining in the home shall not conduct a dating or sexual relationship within the home until a divorce is final and all financial and custody issues are resolved, unless the express permission is granted by the courts.
Wow. Just plain wow. And damned scary.
