Father's Day is dedicated to honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood. The moment is ideal for expressing gratitude for the care, support, and direction fathers give their children while also taking steps to improve your role as a father figure. Instead of simply offering suggestions for Father's Day gifts, Lunch Actually would like to share the impact a parent or in this case, a father has on their children’s love life.
In Malaysia, 1.7% of the total population are single mothers or counted as 235,240 people in 2021. From March 2020 to August 2021, 80,000 divorce cases were recorded nationwide. Which means, more or less, the numbers have contributed to the increase of fatherless figure numbers. The numbers are even more significant as the fatherless do not account for children who had passed away, divorced, gone to prison, or were not physically present in the family but also when he was physically present but he wasn't there, such as he could have been abusive, emotionally unavailable, or an alcoholic.
