And what is to blame for this? Liberal or conservative values? The divorce rate didn't start to climb until the so called women's movement of the 60's and 70's. Funny how in the days when the traditional household was a mother, who generally stayed home, father, and children the crime rate was lower, education was far superior and life was far better. Now the traditional family is scoffed at by liberals. It's made out to be something evil. They like for everyone to believe that women were some kind of submissive chattel owned by the husband when nothing could have been further from the truth. But what liberals and leftists like you seem to cheer the death of the traditional family is that you want people to look at the government as the matriarch/patriarch of the American family. Orwell hit the nail on the head when it came to the traditional family structure as what he spoke about in 1984 is actually pretty true today that marriage is pretty much a matter of convenience today and not a necessity. It's ok to be a single parent because mother government will take care of your children while you work and even you if you don't feel like working. That is the key to the liberals gaining their foothold. Destroy the traditional family and you can control the population. Well done. I hope you and people like you rot in Hell.
We have a divorce rate of 50% and climbing and with two parents working to earn a living, children today are just as likely to raise themselves as to be raised by their parents. This is the norm for most of us not the love, protection, guidance, and eventual reciprocation you express.
