Divorce culture has infected every institution in so-called Western societies. No longer are the pillars of family structure fully supported by established religions or the nation state. The always hungry capitalist economies have seduced women out of the home into the soul killing work forces.
I have been maintaining for years that a parent who alienates a child against the other parent is guilty of child abuse. At best it should be a criminal offense, no different from a parent willfully breaking the arm of a their child.
