These statistics demonstrate that three quarters of our nation's welfare recipients are on welfare as a direct result of the decline in family values (45 percent because of divorce and separation and 30 percent due to a child born out of wedlock).Our nation would be a better place if people took the commitment to marriage more seriously and if fathers stayed around to support their children both emotionally and financially.
