Marriage: Marginalized in the Middle

Brad Wilcox and Chuck Donovan, Christianity Today, 12/6/2010

... Now, the American retreat from marriage is moving into the heart of the social order: the middle class. This retreat from marriage imperils the social and emotional welfare of children. It also threatens the American Dream, insofar as adults who do not get and stay married are less likely to strive, to succeed and to save for the future. This stark assessment emerges from a new report, When Marriage Disappears: The Retreat from Marriage in Middle America, sponsored by the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia and the Center for Marriage and Families at the New York-based Institute for American Values.
