Woah, buddy. So many issues with your commentary.

First of all, the implication that women are the only ones who initiate or cause divorce is laughable and misogynistic.

Secondly, children are better off with two mentally healthy parents in separate households than living in a toxic environment with unhappy, unhealthy people. Children are better off with a strong single parent, whether it’s the dad or the mom, than two parents who are teaching them that abuse is normal and that we don’t need to treat other humans well. We teach our children through our actions, and teaching our children that they should value their own self-worth and right to be treated with respect is not harmful.

Thirdly, divorce is not the thread that is ripping society apart. Divorce is incidental. Racism, sexism, misogyny, classism, fear of things that are different, and our President are things that are actually damaging our society.
