A common misconception is that the only "happy families" are two parents, still married and living together under one roof. However, each family is unique and it's completely possible to be divorced and raise happy, well-rounded and healthy children.

In this "How important are dads?" infographic some of the facts about mental, emotional and even physical effects having a present father could have on a child are discussed.
