Why are some parents faking divorce in Spain?

Apparently the competition for state schools (at least the acceptable ones) is very high in Spain.So what does have to do with the kids’ parents?Well, if a kid is living with a single parent he/she gets more points on the school’s application. That is why some parents are faking their divorces in order to increase the chances for their kid’s admission.Imagine that! Parents are actually divorcing (even if they still love each other) and one of them is even moving out of the house. All this for their kid. Would you divorce in order to help your kid like that?
