Default Finally.....

Colorado seems to be the Quebec of the US. They just keep coming up with reforms...

- There was the Legalizing of Marijuana
- Then they had the controversial same sex marriage thing

- and now..............this:

Quote:
Colorado couples could be required to take premarital education classes before tying the knot, if a proposed ballot initiative goes through.

The Colorado Marriage Education Act would mandate 10 hours of pre-wedding instruction for first-time brides and grooms. Class time doubles to 20 hours for anyone getting married a second time — and triples to 30 hours for individuals wanting to head down the aisle a third time.

This can't be going down well with Lawyers

I'm not sure what the logic is of making it more intensive the more times you do it. You'd think that only a refresher would be required. A refresher every five years or so for an ongoing marriage would be more beneficial, I would think.
