My name is happiness
From two people uniting
When separated I crumble

My surname is law
If you feel wronged
I am your weapon

Readers hate me
Writers avoid me
Who am I?

You are:

Mary Sue

My name is happiness
From two people uniting
When separated I crumble

A happy union of two people occurs when they marry, though distinctly unhappy if it starts to fall apart

My surname is law
If you feel wronged
I am your weapon

You can sue people if they've wronged you, it's a legal process

Readers hate me
Writers avoid me
Who am I?

A Mary Sue is an overly-perfect character in fiction, commonly thought to be the author trying to force an idealised version of themselves into their work. It can be tedious to read.

Addendum: for the title:

The answer to part 1 is more accurately marriage (and part 2 could be suing, or similar). You need the infinitive form of the verbs to get the answer (To marry and to sue)
