Thousands of social science results indicate that a healthy, stable and happy marriage is an optimal relationship for the psychological, emotional and physical well being of adults and children. Functional families are one of the strongest influences on the growth of human competence, and mental and emotional well being.
At a time when marriage and family are under constant siege, Kevin Andrews' thoroughly researched book provides a timely and telling case for making the strengthening of these essential bedrocks of a healthy society a number one priority.
Kevin Andrews highlights those factors which social scientists from all over the world believe benefit or detract from marital success, and examines the ways in which individuals, communities and governments can help to create more successful marital unions.
“Andrews’ clarion call for rebuilding a marriage culture capable of sustaining humanity’s most fundamental social institution ought be heard - and acted upon - throughout the western world.” -George Weigel, Distinguished Snr Fellows, Ethics & Public Policy Ctr, Washington, DC
