Should divorce have a mandatory cooling-off period?

Some couples divorce because of domestic violence. But worse than having a divorce because of domestic violence, is to not divorce because of domestic violence. I suspect however that many divorces happen for this reason and the number of couples remaining married under continued abuse is much higher. This is true in most countries. And if a couple (or individual of that couple) files for divorce, and the court even suggests they take some time to "cool off", the people may not want to give full details on the background, and take that time. Who knows what will happen then. In the worst case scenario, there may be deaths.
