More “people who shouldn’t give birth” news:
In modern Britain, with it’s ultra liberal approach to family life, it’s deeply unfashionable to point out that children who have the misfortune to live with a step-parent are 75 per cent more likely to fail educationally and twice as likely to end up in prison, on drugs, or on the streets than those who live with their natural parents.
In Britain today, it’s taken as an inviolable truth that it’s a parental right to form new relationships and move a step-parent into the home.
In the staff room, however, teachers acknowledge, sometimes openly, often in code, ‘Mum’s met someone, be worth keeping an eye out’, that children are at risk from step-parents.

My lonely mother chose crazy alcoholic pervert Husband #3 over me, and my objections, with predictable consequences, because she “deserved to be happy”.
So: if you don’t want your kids to grow up to be just like me — get a dog if you’re lonely. Actions have consequences. You should have planned your life a little better.
