Let's Protect Marriage in the Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands is considering bills to allow no-fault divorce and eliminate damages for adultery. These proposals undermine and devalue the institution of marriage and are contrary to the Christian values that Caymanians hold dear.

The Law Reform Commission's proposals are actually likely to increase divorce and break more families apart. As W. Brad Wilcox has written, "The nearly universal introduction of no-fault divorce [in the United States] helped to open the floodgates, especially because these laws facilitated unilateral divorce and lent moral legitimacy to the dissolution of marriages." Children of divorce are two to three more times likely to suffer severe social or psychological pathologies, says Wilcox. Making divorce easier through the adoption of no-fault divorce will hurt children and families.

Likewise, eliminating damages for adultery is likely to increase infidelity and undermine marriages further. Adultery should be strongly discouraged and the victim should be compensated for the harm done. Payment of damages is another way to discourage adultery and compensate victims.

I oppose no-fault divorce

To Governor Anwar Choudhury and Cheryl Neblett (Director of the Law Reform Commission),

I oppose the proposals to allow no-fault divorce and eliminate damages for adultery. These proposals undermine and devalue the institution of marriage and are contrary to the Christian values that Caymanians hold dear.
