      Chris I don't know where you're getting your statistics from matey,
but AFAIK divorce rates in Oz are 1/2 at the very worst, and this is
usually quoted only when some high profile psychiatrist is trying to sell
a new book on the subject. From watching (I hate to say it) the occasional
bit of imported US daytime telly, 2/3 is the US divorce rate.
        Just off the top of my head, thinking back to school (bout 5 yrs
ago) maybe 50% of the kids were in one parent families, but that includes
widow(er)ed parents as well. But, anyway...
