No one wants to be blamed. In modern society, personal responsibility has been replaced by defensiveness and rationalization. At present, 27 states allow no-fault divorce, introduced in the 1970s, which gives either spouse the right to terminate his or her marriage without providing justification. What follows the no-fault divorce is an epidemic of divorces, reaching a rate of almost 50 percent.
