Synopsis: When California rolled out no-fault divorce - over thirty years ago - judges were empowered to force divorce on unwitting spouses, even if there was no just cause. Then, a little-known body of lawyers with immense national influence (the NCCUSL) wrote a model law — the Uniform Marriage and Divorce Act (UMDA) — which endorsed California's breakthrough by making Irretrievable Breakdown the sole basis for divorce. Within 15 years, every state had some form of no-fault divorce.

"To strengthen and preserve the integrity of marriage and safeguard family relationships," was the aim of the UMDA. But instead, just the opposite happened — marriage vows lost their meaning and intact families faced grave danger from a system that imposed the 'right to divorce' and ignored any pleas for help. After the early dream of the Marriage Hospital was crushed, the Divorce Industry took over and no one has been able to end the ensuing misery. Learn what happened when vested interests turned a good idea into a Great National Tragedy — and how a divorce mediator stumbled onto this sinister scheme during her time working on 'the inside.'

About the Author: Judy Parejko, M.S. - Family Studies, trained and worked as a divorce mediator for six years until she discovered some surprising things about the sinister role of mediation in the divorce process. This discovery, which eventually led to her demise as a mediator, caused her to change course and - instead of just helping couples reach a good 'settlement'- pursue effective ways to help them get through the crises that were unraveling their marriages. Her standoff with the powers-that-be provided the backdrop to tell the story of the origin of no-fault divorce in this country - a tale that parallels the children's fable, The Emperor's New Clothes, where scoundrels - who deceived both the Emperor as well as his subjects - profited with bags of gold for their misdeeds.
