Little has changed when it comes to upward mobility in America, according to a new study by the National Bureau of Economic Research.
Demographic and cultural signs indicate that the marriage rate, down 50 percent since the 1970s, may be ready to climb again, just as nonmarital childbearing may be dropping, as well.
Although Americans spend $50 billion a year on weddings, a large segment of the population is making an exodus from the institution, says a new report from a family-values think tank.
America's marriage culture may be changing, but two statistics look about the same as they did 30 years ago.
If the wealth of a nation is tied to both the quality and the quantity of its people, then modern trends toward cohabiting instead of marrying, easy divorce and fewer children born to couples will have sweeping economic consequences, a new report says.
Cohabiting is an emerging threat to the health of children and society, two new research reports say.
For at least a generation, marriage and family cohesion have been unraveling in America's low-income families. Now this rending of family ties is spreading into America's middle class, the home of hard-working, blue-collar, service-industry people who graduated from high school but didn't quite land that college degree.
In addition to an "education gap" in marriage, there is also a "faith gap," says the new State of Our Unions report on marriage.
Fully two-thirds of Americans believe in the concept of soul mates, where "two people are destined to be together," according to a recent Marist Poll.
Most Americans count income and professional status as markers of success, he said, though few reach the top tier of either.
W. Bradford Wilcox of the National Marriage Project said it "looks like a married village is more likely to raise the economic prospects of a poor child."
