The Daily Mail have reported Mr Justice Coleridge speech in Parliament calling to stigmatise those who destroy the family and said a 'National Commission' is required to find ways to stop the 'epidemic' of divorced families.
Surely this is a stretch too far!
A National Commission to stop divorce. How can the government possibly think they have the right to interfere in someone elses life to the point that if a marriage breaks down for any number of reasons they will be stigmatised to ensure the marriage stays intact and to use financial incentives as a solution to do so.
I wish our Government would stop thinking that throwing money or financial incentives at a problem will make it go away, especially when they make it their business to mess with peoples lives!
Apparently statistic show that:
~ 1 in 3 marriages end in divorce
~ 1 in 10 children live with both unmarried parents
~ a quarter live with a single parent.
