National Review 548 reads There is 1 Comment Sigh Bert Perry - Thu, 04/19/2018 - 10:03am 93% of women think there is a crisis of father absence. Interestingly, nearly 40% of children are born to unwed parents, and about two thirds of divorces are initiated by women, the vast majority of which do not appear to involve adultery or criminal physical abuse. So in a very real sense, when a lot of those 93% complain about the fathers of their children not being around, I've got to say look in the mirror, ma'am. You'll find the suspect right there. Not that men don't bear blame as well--being content to enjoy a lady's charms without putting a ring on it is their decision, too--but there is a certain point where we've got to start convincing young ladies to say not until you put a ring on it, and then to stick by that promise they made. Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
