A report from the Office for National Statistics shows that only 1 in 5 children live in married couple households.
Well, I do. That may sound odd coming from a divorce lawyer, someone who helps married couples with how to divorce! But whilst I certainly think irretrievably unhappy couples should get a divorce, I have long argued for more funding from the government for support during marriage to keep it strong.
My comment about who cares is also directed at the government. It does seem that it cares not one bit about keeping the traditional family unit and has done nothing at all to help it. Indeed they have worked on and are proposing strong new laws to bolster other relationships.
Does it really matter whether children live with both parents, ideally in a married relationship?
