Marriage is the foundational relationship for all of society. All other relationships in society stem from the father-mother relationship, and these other relationships thrive most if that father-mother relationship is simultaneously a close and closed husband- wife relationship. Good marriages are the bedrock of strong societies, for they are the foundations of strong families. In marriage are contained the five basic institutions, all the basic tasks, of society: 1) family, 2) church, 3) school, 4) marketplace and 5) government. These fundamental tasks, well done, in unity between father and mother, make for a very good marriage. Within a family built on such a marriage, the child gradually learns to value and perform these five fundamental tasks of every competent adult and of every functional society.

Stand in line at any coffee shop, and you’ll hear evidence of picky eating across all ages — from ordering “extra hot” to adding three sugars to half-decaf … or any number of combinations.

When you’re in a relationship with someone, you are bound to get upset with that person at least occasionally. Sometimes, not wanting to offend them, you let the issue go. But other times, you may really want to say something – either because you are so hurt or angry, or because there is a recurring problem that you need to address.

If you imagine a single woman having a baby around 1980, what do you think her life has been like since? By the time that child became an adult, was the mother any better off than she had been when the child was born? In an articlepublished late last month in Demography, Matthew Painter, Adrianne Frech, and Kristi Williams challenge what they say “is often an oversimplified picture of single mothers as more impoverished and less educated than women with a marital first birth.” The part that is oversimplified is assuming that single mothers necessarily stay poor: Painter and his co-authors show that women who have nonmarital first births gain assets (not debt) over time.
