Should divorce have a mandatory cooling-off period?

It could be a good idea in China. Most young Chinese couples got married not based on love and mutual understanding, and the current generation went through almost no trials and always takes things for granted. Sometimes marriages happen only because they think they match each other based on income, or out of expectations of parents. Immature relationships could be so fragile that a few quarrels would lead to irresponsible divorce. A cooling-off period would give young couples one more chance to make a wiser decision. Nevertheless, if the marriage is so rotten, they could still decide to divorce. So this cooling-off period sounds like it does no harm but benefits couples.

Marriage counselors say that women these days would hesitate about divorcing their husbands as they’d much rather offer their children a complete family. Lu Ping / China Daily
