Church support for marriage among poor and middle class Americans can play a key role in combating income inequality and providing a good environment for children, a sociologist told the U.S. bishops.
Differences in male-female parenting styles are not imaginary or based on stereotypes, according to an extensive survey released Monday.
Parenthood changes both men and women "from the inside out." A new report outlines what happens physically and mentally and why it matters.
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.
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.
America's "retreat" from marriage disadvantages children and fuels social and economic inequalities, sociologist W. Bradford Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project and senior fellow at the Institute for Family Studies, said in the report.
Wilcox said that religious faith "can be an asset" for marriage in America, especially for couples who share the same faith and worship and pray together.
