Divorced dads who maintain an active role in their children’s lives reap the benefits now and later on.
Even out-of-state dads with limited parenting time are still far better for a child than not having a father in the picture at all.
With roughly one of every two marriages ending in divorce, a dad need not feel guilty about ending the marriage. As long as courts recognize the importance of shared parenting, children of divorced parents will be right up there in emotional stability and achievement with children from households where the parents are married and living together.
