The Many Benefits of Marriage

I have spent a lot of time defending marriage in this blog and pointing out the dangers of redefining it, but not nearly enough time extolling the benefits and blessings of being married.

To partly correct that oversight I direct you to this excellent overview provided by FamilyScholars.org of the many benefits of marriage in our society in the health and prosperity of our citizens, to the lives of our children.

The reality is, apart from marriage we could not enjoy the wealth and health we do as a society. It has no sustitute.

    Jack, there was an article on the Huffington Post yesterday about the “benefits” of divorce and how divorce is good for children. I was appalled, being the son of divorced parents.

    Thanks for the article Justin – that is pretty appalling. It certainly doesn’t seem to reflect the typical experience.

    CNN is jumping into the fray with this article:
    “Is marriage becoming obsolete?”

    All of the “failures” of marriage that this article points out directly stem from not treating marriage as God intended.
