This is just proof of the reality that as traditional (may I say Biblical) family units in the West further degenerate into broken homes with no father and mother working together as a team to raise kids, this kind of stuff is the end result. It is very sad, and practical proof of the need for solid Gospel preaching here to revive families, reversing the curse by His work on the cross. The broken people in the world do not need more entertainment in the church (which they can find on TV anyway), but solid, Biblical, expository preaching of the Gospel, for unbelievers to be saved, but also for all progress in sanctification once in the faith. There is a reason God designed the family the way he did. It cannot function without its core elements in place; it is systematic; all elements utilize, work off of, and are dependent upon each other. And therefore, if mankind wants to go and start messing with that design, it is no wonder brokenness is what results. This is good evidence of that fact.
