While many of those parents are single, about 4 percent of children live with two cohabiting  parents”

Are women really unhappy?

“Women are more depressed and anxious than men. Why?”

 

Because we don’t make as much money as men do, researchers say.

‘Current California law provides all rights relating to the care of loves ones to spouses, which leaves children no legal avenue to arrange visitation with their ailing parents, to receive notice of hospitalization or even the death of that parent.The child is also denied access to information regarding funeral arrangements.’

‘Part of the problem, California Assemblyman Mike Gatto said, is the increase in tension between the second or third spouse and the children of the first marriage. That conflict often gets worse when a parent becomes sick.’
