About half of all marriage ends in divorce. With or without children.
And regardless of marital status, states are terrible at enforcing the payment of child support. Just ask any single mom, does the dad pay his child support? In full? On time?
Well, if you’re a deadbeat dad in Iowa, now you might have the perfect excuse not to pay.
Republican State Senator Mark Chelgren has a wonderful idea. If you’re the parent paying child support, you should be able to make the other parent- you know, the one who is responsibly sticking around for their children and trying to raise them without you- pass a drug test before receiving child support.
Never mind that, statistically speaking, the parent with the children is more likely to be drug free and socially responsible. No, if you are a single mother you should have to humiliate yourself to the father of your children- the man who left you and his life’s greatest responsibilties.
This is punishing single mothers, pure and simple. Punishing them for the crime of having children alone, when that is an awesome burden and responsibility.
A woman does not need a husband to be a good mother. And a single mother seeking child support from the father of her children isn’t looking for a handout. She is a responsible adult, and treating her as anything but is an insult to women everywhere.
