Webster’s “covenant marriage” problem..

    “At a quarterly meeting, Florida-based members of the National Organization for Women said Grayson, a Democrat, was a champion for the group’s causes. They also said his Republican opponent, Daniel Webster, would significantly delay or turn back women’s advancement if elected.”

    Webster, who was a member of the Florida Legislature for 28 years, sponsored a bill in 1990 that would have established covenant marriage and prevented divorce for people married under the program except in cases of adultery. He also voted against legislation to prevent health insurers from considering domestic violence to be a preexisting condition.

    In the 1990s, Webster reportedly said he opposed abortion in all cases including those involving incest and rape.
