Women Need Men For Their Children

Biologically, women can choose to go at motherhood alone.  They need a man for only a very few moments; through scientific advances, they can even avoid contact with a man.  Whether a mother decides from the start that her child needs no father or she later ejects the father from the family through divorce, or whether a man walks out, the wisdom and stability of thousands of years is being replaced with the latest trend.  Statistics show overwhelmingly that after a divorce, men reduce contact with their families.  When men initiate divorce, they not only hurt their wives and children, they also hurt themselves in terms of diminished health and reduced economic prowess.  Even more seriously, they impact future American generations in way in ways impossible to fully appreciate at the moment.
