    Here in Israel divorce is controlled by the Rabinical Authorities. A women cannot threaten her husband with divorce. A women must be given a divorce "Get" by her husband and if he does not agree she cannot divorce him, EVER!! A man does not need his wife's consent. So you see, here, there is not the oppotunity for the manipulation you describe. Women's rights in Israel (unfortunately)are not yet on par with those you are familiar with in America. What is important really, is to research well what is really happening in Israeli families with divorced parents and fit any change in law accordingly, to suit the best interests of the children involved. Not to just jump on the band-wagon and fit our legistration to those of North America and Europe that have very different cultural, economic and religious make-up from ours. This is the Middle-East not America or Europe.
