Carol Platt Liebau: "Marry Your Baby Daddy"

"Marry Your Baby Daddy"

Kudos to Maryann Reid. By encouraging people to marry, she is improving the quality of life in the neighborhoods -- and above all, the prospects for the newlyweds' children, because:

Children raised in fatherless homes are more likely to be delinquent, do poorly in school, have lower self-esteem, become chemical abusers, and reproduce the same family pattern in their own lives. In most cases, no matter how strong or diligent a mother may be, children have a subconscious knowledge of what is right and wrong in a family set up. Boys turn to their fathers for their sense of masculinity and manhood. If their dad isn't around, the streets and group aggression are the next best thing for most.

Let's hope the trend catches on.

Funny world where fathers and mothers getting married seems so strange.
