Every child needs a father and mother to raise them, care for them, and nurture them. Together.
Yet we abandon many children to a lifetime of pain, confusion and uncertainty. Some don’t even know who their father is. Many are torn between two households, two different ways of doing things, two cultures. Many struggle with debilitating mental health, crippling emotional health problems.
Statistics clearly show that the best chance for staying together is to marry. Public commitment is a strong glue.
We need a government which has the courage to say that marriage matters, that care and commitment go together.
