Brian Willoughby, an assistant professor in the School of Family Life at Brigham Young University, said the governor's signature is an important step toward starting a discussion on the role pornography is playing on the socialization of Utah's youth.
"I think a lot of people assume marriage has been devalued," Brian Willoughby, assistant professor at BYU, told Collins. "There's nothing that indicates people don't care about marriage any more. If anything, the view is more positive than in the past. It's the ultimate goal for a committed relationship but, on the flip side, there's a paradoxical idea that I might not do that or want that. American culture has made marriage an awesome but optional thing you could do."
