[url]http://www.observer.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,6903,525684,00.html[/url] However, the report, which says that cohabitation and single parent homes lead to more lax attitudes to underage sex and more teenage pregnancies, was condemned last night for being simplistic. 'These types of reports are not helpful,' said Margaret Creear of Gingerbread, the single-parent support organisation. 'Once again it is promoting the nuclear family headed by a heterosexual couple who are married. The reasons for underage pregnancies are much more complex and often to do with social deprivation, not whether your parents are married or not.' kamal.ahmed@observer.co.uk [size=3] You can't fool Mother Nature even if you are a women. MS. Creear is pissed off because her FEMIN-NAZI world is not the rose garden she supposes. Men are important in the developement of healthy children.[/size=3]

I said the same thing to myself as I read the story. Its just plain common sense which is rapidly becoming uncommon.

You don't think private enterprise would waste money for a study that they already know the answer to do you? Only a government would do that.

Its amazing that common sense and the personal experience of half the people in this country is news. I wonder if I can get a grant (and volunteers) to see if holding your hand over a candle will cause pain.

Generally speaking, this is true. However, as a divorced father, I would not totally agree. Our being together and constantly arguing and the tension was having it's effects on our daughter. It was pretty obvious. When we split, there were no games pulling her back and forth. We neither one badmouthed each other and not once did either of us use her as a pawn. In fact, my ex and I are great friends {for the 26 years we have been divorced), we just couldn't live together. I stayed in Michelle's life and we even occasionally did things together as a family including my ex, especially Christmas. I think Michelle was better off with her mom and I not being together, partially because we both paid a lot of attention to her after the divorce (and while we were together). Go ahead and flame me, but this is my personal experience. If more divorced parents would handle it the way we have, kids would not be as affected by it.
