Sidey, Douglas, "The Economic and Financial Effect of Single Parent Homes" (2015). Senior Honors Theses. 512.
A crisis is facing the American population today because of the growing prevalence of single parent homes. This single parenthood produces a cyclical nature in which the families that get started have a hard time removing themselves from the patterns and problems of this cycle. This is due in large part to the financial issues that a family will face due to the divorce from, or loss of, a spouse. These financial issues affect not only the parent that is raising children alone, but it affects the children, the spouse that has left, and the economy at large. This phenomenon, while not recent, has become increasingly prevalent in the American society and the throughout the world. While there are solutions to this problem, they revolve around a heart issue that is being affected by every facet of human existence. The only real solution to this issue, which will not only free people from the pain of divorce, but free them to financial freedom, is Jesus Christ.
