Traditional family unit vital for stable upbringing

The disintegration of traditional family life and the rise in fatherless homes is having serious social implications in Western societies, and the clamour for same-sex marriages further compounds this problem.

The civil purpose of marriage is not simply to reaffirm the love of a man and a woman for life, nor just to register a business arrangement.

The main purpose of marriage is for the legal protection needed for the one institution that ensures society’s stable future.

All healthy societies in all times and places in history are unanimous that the orderly procreation and upbringing of children is best in a natural family, or as close as possible by relatives or surrogates in extreme necessity.

As family life breaks down, so does society.

The decline in marriage and the rice in illegitimacy are prime factors in the rising crime rate, in poverty and in social decay generally, i.e. decency, manners.

The results of fatherlessness are even more alarming from recent studies in US and UK.

Chaos results when communities permit a large number of young men to grow up in broken homes (usually dominated by women) and who are never able to acquire a stable relationship with a male role-model to help restrain their masculine impulses and guide them into proper male roles.

Crime, violence and unrestrained rebellion from the whole social structure are almost inevitable, as we see increasing today.

Many studies have shown that children raised in traditional mum and dad families are much more likely to finish school, to get a decent job, to socialise, marry and settle down than to resort to lawlessness from frustration.

The traditional family is the best department of health, education, and welfare ever “invented”.

We must nurture and protect it.

Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom within our society as well. Lest we forget!
