Falling through the Cracks

I have a question.

Why is it okay with so many people if parents, in effect, ditch their children when they get a divorce? I know some people who have done that. The children have fallen through the cracks, victims of their parents’ so-called personal needs for happiness.

It seems to me that when you have children, they should automatically rocket to first place in your priorities. They are very small and vulnerable and are totally dependent on their parents. How could anybody cast them aside, not caring what happens to them?

I understand that the divorce rate is high, and probably nothing is going to change that. But even so--there are ways to sacrifice some selfish motives and “needs” to see that children are loved, wanted, and cared for. That’s the least a parent can do.
