Rep. Gassman: Make it harder to get divorced so girls won't be 'More Promiscuous'

05 Mar 2013 — 05:32 AM

Yesterday, an Iowa House Subcommittee approved a bill that would make no-fault divorces illegal. State Rep. Tedd Gassman supported the legislation — which would require all parents of children under 18 to prove their spouse had committed a crime, abandoned the family, or committed adultery — claiming that without the bill there would be a possibility that teenage girls, with their 'hormones raging' would be 'more promiscuous.'

Radio Iowa initially covered the story, and the national blog Think Progress picked it up as well. Watch video of Rep. Gassman's comments here:
