In the unfortunate circumstances of irretrievable marriage breakdown, support services will be provided that work towards ensuring amicable arrangements between the aggrieved parents in the best interests of the children. Compulsory counselling reinforces societies' values and commitments to the sanctity of marriage and the individual’s commitment to work strongly to retain the marriage vows. All children from a second relationship should be treated equally; children in subsequent marriages should be afforded the same futures as those from a previous marriage.
