However, with the new act and its simplicity people are no longer trying to fix their marriages and are just getting divorced which leads to the breakdowns of many family units. For example, the divorce rate increased by 5% between 2009 and 2010. This can have terrible effects upon the family in particular any children the couple may share because a parents’ divorce can be an upsetting time and some children find it very difficult to handle. It can also affect the family because not all divorces are civil and it can leave the couple having bad relations and in custody battles the children can be deeply affected because in some cases only one parent has custody and they don’t allow the children to see the other parent therefore depriving them of a treasured bond within their life.

A Modest Proposal At The beginning of “A Modest Proposal”, Jonathan Swift talks about how when he lived people that were born poor stayed poor and how women would raise these young men and they would become thieves or go off to war and fight. He says how women can’t really live their own life and they just have to be house moms. He starts off saying that these poor kids at a young age are pretty much worthless.

Wright faces extreme racism at every job he works also. When he is younger, he helps out whites around their houses for pay and he seems to be treated the same way he would have been treated if he were their slave.
I empathise with these people and want to make a difference to their lives as I have personally experienced abuse and misfortune. My parents were working-class immigrants, I was bought up in a family which had very little money therefore there were no toys at all, I have experienced racism and worse still, my father was physically and psychologically abusive to me and my siblings.
