Women who have been and abused should not have to wait a year to get divorced from the man that hurt them. In NC the man and woman must be living seperate with no cohabilation for one year before a divorce. I dont think women who have been abused should have to wait a year for a divorce. I have seen the affects of abuse and the year waiting only makes it worse. About two years ago my mom was a victim of abuse and that one year waiting period sucked, it was another year of waiting for it to be over, another year of still being attached to the man that hurt them. Help me change this, after this petition gets a bunch of signatures I am going to send a letter to the governor, congressmen, and senators of NC with a link to this petition, hopfully changing this law. I may only be 13 and I might not be able to change the world but I can change my world with help! Thank you for your support!
