The marriage of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, which began with a storybook wedding, ended Friday in a grim courtroom with a judge approving a divorce settlement after a protracted legal battle between the former couple.
Fargo attorney Maureen Holman says when it comes to divorce, every situation is different.

Last week, The Jamestown Sun asked readers of its website the question “Should the North Dakota Legislature pass SB 2367, which would require couples seeking divorces to wait one year and undergo mandatory counseling before they split up?” Here are the results of the unscientific survey:
A bill that sought to delay divorces for couples with children and require marriage counseling was turned into a study on Monday.
Senate Bill 2367 now asks for a 2011-12 interim state study looking into the physical, emotional and financial effects associated with divorces involving dependent children.
It’s ironic that a conservative North Dakota Legislature wants to bring the heavy boot of government intrusion into one of the most personal and private aspects of life: divorce. Senate Bill 2367’s primary sponsor, Sen. Oley Larson, R-Minot, said the legislation imposes a one-year waiting period during which couples would have to participate jointly or separately in at least 10 one-hour counseling sessions. The aim, he said, is to help save marriages, or failing that, reach agreements to help kids make a smooth transition.

Senate Bill 2367 would affect married couples with children. Marriages with substantiated allegations of domestic abuse would be exempt.
