With the continuing drop in the birth rate in Japan (and marriage
rate) - surely it's wise to encourage people to marry and have children
by letting them know they will always have their rights of a parent
met regardless of divorce. As it stands, marriage is risky given
the divorce rate and lack of support from the family courts in Japan

custody by the family court and the non-custodial parent will likely
never see their child(ren) meaningfully again. Given that, currently
it could be said that the drop in the birth-rate in Japan is partly
a result of the Draconian family laws of Japan (amongst other reasons).
