So how much diversity do you get...

...for 7 billion dollars?

"Rather than try to turn back the clock," said Glenn Hope, executive director of the BC Council For Families, "our position is to celebrate the diversity of families."

"The government doesn't have to start promoting marriage, it has to stop promoting the single-parent lifestyle choice."

"There should be no breeding incentives for young women with sex partners who aren't man enough to be fathers."

I think you'll find this is a far more conservative study than you give it credit for:

Sure the diversity comment is nonsense, but the premise behind the study is valid. Family dysfunction and divorce leads to increased rates of poverty which, eventually, you and I have to pay for.

When stupid women have sex with jerks poverty is the result.

The government doesn't have to start promoting marriage, it has to stop promoting the single-parent lifestyle choice.

There should be no breeding incentives for young women with sex partners who aren't man enough to be fathers.

Well, there would be a lot less diversity if stupid people would choose carefully, wait longer before becoming sexually active and having children, use birth control and take responsibility for their relationships with their children AND their spouse. Raising a young family requires patience and lots of co-operation.

Psychology Today reported that "60% of remarriages fail. And they do so even more quickly; after an average of 10 years, 37% of remarriages have dissolved versus 30% of first marriages".
