RICHARD EYRE ON DIVORCE


"We now have over 40 years worth of very conclusive statistics that show that children from two parent homes (a mother and a father) are at substantially less risk for drug abuse, teen pregnancy, school dropout, suicide, and a whole host of other problems. Statistically they have a better chance of being good students, of feeling well adjusted socially, and of being happy. Too many divorces are justified with the old line about not wanting children to have to continue to be exposed to the tension of a bad relationship. We forget that what children really need to be exposed to is parents trying and working hard to save something that is deeply important. Nothing manifests a parent's love for a child more than struggling to keep that child's family together. The old cliche is true: 'The best thing a father or mother can do for a child is to love that child's mother or father.'"
