The Exodus From Marriage

A RECENT ARTICLE in Commentary Magazine points to the dire condition of contemporary marriage. You can read it here. Because the socialization of our children depends upon marriage, the state of marriage in North America  matters greatly. Twenty five percent of our children are growing up with out fathers. The Fatherhood Initiative notes that children growing up without fathers are 5 times more likely to commit suicide, 32 times more likely to run away, 20 times more likely to have behvioral disorders, 14 times more likely to commit rape, 9 times more likely to drop out of high school, 10 times more likely to abuse chemical substances, 9 ties more likely to end up in a state-operated institution, and 20 times more likely to end up in prison." 

That is why this article in Commentary Magazine is so important.
