How Family Breakdown Hits Girls

“The state of family breakdown in Britain is bleak. I read a statistic recently from Matt Goodwin’s Substack that by time they turn 14, 46% of first-born children here no longer live with both their mother and father.

Matt mentioned some other depressing statistics, too. Like this report looking at the percentage of British children who experience family breakdown by the time they turn 16/17: for those born in 1958, it was 9%. For those born in 1970 it had risen to 21%. And among children born around 2001-2002, it had risen almost five-fold to 43%.”
