Item description for Why Marriage Matters: Reasons to Believe in Marriage in Postmodern Society by Glenn Stanton...

Overview
WHY MARRIAGE MATTERS She cooks, cleans, and pays him rent, but she's not his wife. He's her father, but they've never met. They say they love each other, but have the option to leave if things get rough. Marriage is in trouble. Labeled old-fashioned, out-dated, and irrelevant, marriage is being abandoned for divorce, living together, single parenting, and sexual freedom. Lasting marriages, which used to be esteemed as the building block of society, are disappearing at an alarming rate. Drawing from one hundred years of social science research, Why Marriage Matters examines the state of marriage in America today and gives readers solid reasons to believe in marriage in a post modern culture. If you want to know more about the benefits of marriage for society or understand why so many marriages are falling apart, Why Marriage Matters provides a strong, reasoned case for defending marriage in a society characterized by lack of commitment.

Reviews - What do customers think about Why Marriage Matters: Reasons to Believe in Marriage in Postmodern Society?

WHY MARRIAGE MATTERS  Apr 10, 2007
READER SHOULD BE AWARE THIS IS A "FOCUS ON THE FAMILY" BOOK AND THE MORALISTIC DRUM BEAT IS CONSTANT.
 
"Very Good Book"  Feb 14, 2007
In this time of so many divorces this was a great book detailing the many benefits of marriage.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who falsely believes that marriage has no value and that single life is the best.
 
Live long and prosper...  Nov 21, 2000
The results of over 100 years of scientific research are gathered together in one place, spanning studies from the 1890s to the present day. The data cover multiple cultures and deal with all stages and ages of life. Literally hundreds of individual studies are represented, many of which were done by researchers at some of the most "liberated" universities in Europe and America. Yet the results of all these studies uniformly support a consistent set of notions: that human beings fare best when they are reared in intact nuclear families; that they prosper best in adult life when joined, male and female, in lifelong monogamous relationships sanctioned and supported by the community; that both adults and children suffer enormously when divorce breaks up a family.

The implications are clear. The post modern mantras that "children are resilient," and that "we're better off apart if we don't agree" are just plain wrong.

The lessons to be learned are not just for those facing marital difficulties. I think the message is especially important for re-establishing in our children the expectation that marriage is forever, so choose well and work hard. This book may be a little dry for your teenager and addresses a difficult subject for many parents to discuss with their own children, so you might wnat to extract some nuggets for small group discussion at key places like church youth gatherings. In the process, you will probably discover some reasons of your own for "keeping at it."

 
A "marriage saver". Critical information for every marriage  Sep 28, 1999
My husband and I read this book at a critical point in our marriage, and found it a life-saver. Many of the author's points are based on research and statistics, but when he writes from the heart, it touches your heart. It truly was an eye-opener and beneficial to us.
 
Good Research Book  Nov 27, 1998
This was a good reference for my daughter writing a school paper on marriage.
