It is the scariest statistic I’ve read for some time.
In a survey on family time, one of the questions asks – is it important that children grow up with both their mother and father?
Three-quarters of children polled said yes.
The adults? Just over half.
Only one in two people old enough to vote and drive cars think there may be certain repercussions if either Mum or Dad isn’t around to help bring up their children.
By extension, that’s one in two people, presumably, who won’t tax themselves too much with thinking about the kids when deciding how divorce factors into their ‘life plan goal setting’.
The best spin I can put on this is that it represents denial.
The worst, that it represents an arrogance that makes me fear for this country. Although some would argue that I worry too much…
