From a comprehensive report by the U. Department of Health and Human Services we can say that "Mothers who are married to the father of their children are less likely to neglect or abuse their children, compared to single mothers.
Since the biological father is precisely that person whom the “domestic violence industry” and child support bureaucracies want to remove from the family home, countless children of divorced parents have become the primary victims of a legal system which makes them unable to develop a stronger, more positive connection with their biological fathers, in any feasible way that would typically reduce all likelihood of abuse and neglect.
Malae, 22, is from Kabul. She was not allowed to attend school, instead her father made her weave carpets day and night at his shop. She was forced to marry a rich man who abused her.
