We could rectify this situation by setting alimony to a set amount, that would still be a hefty amount for the poor, but wouldn't be too much for a woman who's middle class. Then create percentage tax breaks for those taking care of a child. Not a fixed amount tax deduction. And no greater tax break if it's more than 2 children. Maybe a 5% tax break for one child, a 7% tax break for two. Start incentivizing middle class people not to avoid having children. In Singapore the government was very concerned about the potential for IQ levels in their society falling over time, and were handing out free color TVs to any college-educated woman who chose to have children.
