Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
VBO, this is advertisement! It doesn't prove your point, either: it just laments today's stepfamilies. How many children lived with a stepparent, relatives other than parents, foster parents, or other persons not the biological parents in 2012, 1992, 1972, 1952, and so on?

Do you want more fun looking for non-existent stats, or will you believe me that the numbers are not increasing (they are probably falling). Divorce is easier, but fewer parents die young. Fostering (both "official" and in the extended family) and adoption is decreasing.
