Marriage Immune System

June 19, 2011 § Leave a comment

This, How Divorce Lost Its Cachet, reports on the surprising decrease in the number of divorces among middle-class, college educated marriages – 27%, versus 58% for those less educated. This may have policy implications, as this is the same group that has fairly small “L” liberal attitudes. A government which is “marriage friendly” may be viewed more favorably – particularly in potentially focusing on children’s needs. Of course, this doesn’t negate the need to continue supporting single parent families and their economic difficulties.
