This article is directed at domestic relations judges and lawyers, on behalf of hundreds of thousands of divorced men and fathers. …
Nowadays, men are but guests in their own homes. evict-able at a mere whim of their wives, with no practical recourse, unless they are wealthy. Thanks to “no fault” laws, there is no right or wrong; anything goes. Husband #1 can be kicked out to make room for #2, or so a wife can “find herself.” For all practical purposes fathers can forget about obtaining child custody. You couldn’t do much more damage to a child than to sentence him or her to life in a single-mother household.
Just a cursory examination of Men’s Defense Assoc. ﬁles shows the following:
· 2/3ds to 3/4ths of divorces are initiated by wives, justiﬁably expecting to be awarded custody, alimony (largely disguised as “child support”), the house, etc.
· 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes.
· 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes.
· 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes.
· 80% of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes.
· 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.
· 75% of all adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes.
· 70% of juveniles in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes.
· 85% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home.
These statistics translate to mean that children from a fatherless home are:
· 5 times more likely to commit suicide.
· 32 times more likely to run away.
· 20 times more likely to have behavioral disorders.
· 14 times more likely to commit rape
· 9 times more likely to drop out of high school.
· 10 times more likely to abuse chemical substances.
· 9 times more likely to end up in a state-operated institution.
· 20 times more like to end up in prison
Why are these children fatherless? Because their fathers ran away? Not very often. More often they were evicted by a judge pandering to a disgruntled, defecting wife.
