It is beyond belief that our Florida legislators cannot walk and chew gum at the same time. The session is only a couple of months long, so multitasking has to be part of the deal if they want to lead.
Case in point: their inability to move an alimony-relief bill toward becoming law. People affected by current alimony laws and the judicial decisions based on them should not have to wait years for some relief.
A good solution would be to require a prenuptial agreement as a condition for obtaining a marriage license in the state. While all parties are in a relatively good frame of mind before the wedding, they could make rational decisions about distribution of assets and children’s welfare.
Should a marriage fail, the outcome is already known.
Now don’t all family-law practitioners squeal at once!
