LETTER: Divorce: children must come first

Sir: How much I agree with Christine Roe (letter, 28 March). The Divorce Bill should be amended to create a presumption against the granting of a divorce while there are children of the marriage under 16. That presumption could be rebutted, but only against specified criteria, and after a court welfare officer had recommended that the children were more likely to be harmed by the continuance of the marriage than its dissolution.
