Research - benefits of marriage
We know that marriage is the best foundation for society - and that the evidence affirms that.
Often people ask what evidence there is to show that marriage is the best environment for society and family.
This page higlights some of the studies that affirm this...
162 Reasons to Marry
The study, '162 Reasons to Marry', is a synthesis of social science research prepared for MARRI, the Marriage and Religion Research Institute. It is authored by Pat Fagan, Anne Dougherty, and Miriam McElvain.
The Report gives 162 reasons - each in just a line (or sometimes two). Each 'reason' is backed up by detailed footnotes and references to the study that provides the evidence for the statement. The results are divided into sections of Family, Church and Religion, Education, Marketplace (work and finances), Government and Crime, Health and Mental Health.
Many of these then have sub-sections - for instance, the Family section has a general section on Family, and subsections on Spousal Relationships, Attachment, Parenting, Sexuality and Sexual Satisfaction.
