In Russia suggested to complicate the divorce process to reduce the number of broken marriages. With such initiative the Deputy of Legislative Assembly of Leningrad region Vladimir Petrov intends to apply to the Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev, writes News.ru.
According to Petrov, more time should be given for couples to reflect on and confirm their intention to divorce. “We need to establish a “sanitary break” in 2-3 months”, — the statement says. If the spouses have common children, the period pause can be increased up to six months. In addition, according to the Deputy, they will need to double-confirm their intentions after the application and after “health break.” He also noted that couples before making a final decision it is necessary to attend counseling. Professionals should help the couple to assess how balanced their decision and is it possible to keep the family together.
Now the process of divorce is quite simple, and couples use this opportunity often, after a quarrel, said the Deputy. According to Petrov, in 2018 in Russia, there were 917 thousand marriages and 584 thousand divorces. The high level of the disintegrating couples, in his opinion, adversely affects the demography and morals. The cost of these services, according to Petrov, can be offset by money from Fund of obligatory medical insurance.
Earlier it became known that from 2017 to 2018, the number of registered divorces declined to 589 thousand. However, the number of registered marriages has also decreased to 923 thousand, i.e. by 12 percent.
