"Death of Marriage" exaggerated by media, Women's group claim

.- - Dr. Janice Crouse, Senior Fellow of Concerned Women for America’s (CWA) think tank, The Beverly LaHaye Institute, said today that last week's headlines proclaiming the "death of marriage" across the country have been greatly exaggerated.

"The headlines are misleading. In fact, the text of the New York Times article admits that the total number of married couples is higher than ever and that most Americans do get married," Crouse said.

The expert explained that “while it is accurate that married couples as a proportion of all American households have fallen below 50 percent (many households consist of single people -- unmarried young adults or older widows and widowers), 60 percent of women aged 25-54 are married."

"We’ve been writing for months about the 'loneliness epidemic' -- the increasing number of people who live alone. We’ve also been writing about the dramatic increase in the number of couples who are cohabitating. Even so, these trends are negligible in comparison to the number of couples that marry," she added.

"Another important fact has been overlooked. Most households with children are families of married couples (though the number of cohabiting couples with children is increasing)," she concluded.
