Why Marriage Matters
“…We should provide the facts about the importance of marriage as a matter of child welfare and economic aspiration.

“The Brookings Institution says that if we had the marriage rate today that we had in 1970, there would be a 25 percent drop in poverty. The Heritage Foundation says that marriage drops the probability of a child living in poverty by 82 percent.” — FoxNews
“National Marriage Week presents a chance to focus on rebuilding a culture of marriage for this generation.” — NEWSWEEK magazine
