Marriage and Family courts is the most destructive government bureaucracy in American society. Never should the government have been given the authority to oversee a couple's relationship; neither by marrying them, divorce proceedings, and especially determining the future of their children. The original purpose of Government where marriage is concerned was to keep records of who married who and where they lived, which determined how much in taxes they paid. They have no further business in the business of any couples.
There is a legal duty, and there is a personal duty in marriage and the church should be the personal keepers involved in marriage. Marriage is a union of God, not of the government. The problem is that America's religious leaders are too stupid to judge the situations between couples. They are spiritually inept, morally corrupt, and lack respect from the American public. They do not understand the concepts of the Holy Bible they read from and pretend to study; nor do they understand what God's divine purpose is for married couples.
Because of this lack of spirituality in religious leaders, the government has control over the fate of a couple and their children. Children are separated from their mothers and fathers, women (and men) are given total responsibility of the children even if they are morally unfit, and couples have remarried two and three times bringing new spouses into families that are now considered dysfunctional. Children are taking controlled substances and murdering their classmates, young adults blame their parents for their own failures, fathers are torn from their children and mothers are working stress-filled days trying to provide for their children.
As a long-term result, television media tries to justify and normalize dysfunctional behavior out of each of the above and society has no choice but to accept it as normal and the cycle continues only downward. Thus the family suffers from a lack of spiritual leadership and sadly government apathy. No religious leaders have the answer because they do not know the answer. They have not studied God's ways and they have not prayed for revelation of His laws. They have merely accepted this controlled environment and adjusted to it like sheep.
