I find this article disturbing.  It took a long time for New York to join many other states in the nation to include no-fault divorce, permitting clients to obtain a divorce without substantiating specific grounds. 

There were instances in the past where certain individuals could not get divorced because an angry spouse refused to grant them a divorce and the other spouse was unable to establish the requisite grounds.

This article suggests that the Republican Party has been pushing back on the idea of no-fault divorce being invalid and that not being in love or irreconcilable differences is not a valid reason to get divorced. 

People should be permitted to marry whom they choose and should also be permitted to obtain a divorce when they choose, regardless of the grounds.
