According to Ramesh Ponnuru, senior editor for National Review, Families provide the foundation people need to be successful in a challenging and chaotic world. Ponnuru says that abundant evidence shows that children generally do better academically, economically, and behaviorally “when they are raised by parents who are married to each other.” Adults who go unmarried or raise children without a partner, meanwhile, are more likely to struggle personally and economically.
While Ponnuru uses political reasons for the necessity of families, our civilization itself is in dire need of a return to the biblical family. –Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell.
