In 1960 there was one dominant family form in the United States. At that time 73% of all children were living in a family with two married parents in their first marriage.

By 1980, 61% of children were living in this type of family, and today less than half (46%) are. 

2014 Statistics:
Two parents, first marriage 46%
Two parents second marriage 15%
Co-habituating as parents 7%
Single parents 26%
No parent 5%

About 4 out 10 children were born to unwed mothers. Nearly two-thirds are born to mothers under the age of 30.

Of all single-parent families in the U.S., single mothers make up the majority. 84% are Mothers, 16% are Fathers

Around 49% of single mothers have never married, 51% are either divorced, separated or widowed. Half have one child, 30% have two or more.

Trump and Clinton acting like divorcing parents.

I represent clients in divorce. A long time ago a mentor told me that representing people in divorce was generally good people acting their worst. Or as Frank Herbert once said: “Reason is the first casualty of emotion”. Confucius said “He who sets out to dig one grave, digs two.”
I watch how both Trump and Clinton have acted, as well as others on their behalf. The name calling, the accusations, the mudslinging. Is it the dirtiest campaign ever? No, but perhaps in recent times.
It is no different than how I see adults acting every day in a divorce, name calling, accusations, and mudslinging. The children are the ones that suffer in such a divorce.
Are we, the people, unlike those children, suffering because of the bickering? The children and we witness the division, the strife, and the anger.
If you want to know what it is like for children in a lot of divorces, simply turn on the television and watch Trump and Clinton. There you have it.
Where is God? Where is Jesus?

"Reason is the first victim of strong emotion."

Ever so true in the world of divorce law.
