Degraded family finances obviously negatively impact education opportunities in
a statistical way. Divorce also has many other negative impacts on the
psychology of the child. That is why every significant religion discourages
divorce and encourages faithful traditional marriage. These things
are mysteries ?
Divorce rips apart so much more than the finances. It takes time to recover.
Kids who understand that their education is a tool and are willing
to make the investment will continue to get their higher education. Those
without a goal involving education will do something else "easier" in
the short run. That shows up in the "non-white" vs. "white"
statistics. Presumably the "non-white" generally have more obstacles
regardless of normal family income.
Sorry!Kids can work themselves through,- for higher education, no
matter what situation their parents are in.
The government should not determine the finances of a couple, married or
divorced. Alimony and child support mandated by the state is fascist. And i am happily married with kids. Heaven forbid if we were to
separate it would be the responsibility of myself and my wife to care for the
kids, not a fascist and over-reaching nanny state.
In most divorce cases involving a stay-at-home mother, the courts attempt to put
her in the same financial position she would have been without the divorce.
Sometimes this works out; sometimes it doesn't. But an ex-husband who
fails to pay alimony and child support may be subjected to some very harsh
punishments including, in appropriate circumstances, jail time. So he's
usually quite motivated to pay those things if he has the resources to do it.
Parents need to support their children during a marriage and after a divorce.
They brought them into the marriage and they are responsible to provide for
them. Too many ex-spouses move on, have more children, and forget they have
responsibilities to the previous children including financial. If everyone paid
their child support, put their children's happiness and success first, a
lot more children would do a lot better. If they don't want the financial
and other obligations of children than don't have any. It all comes down to
