In the last 50 years, the percentage of US children raised by a single parent increased from 9 percent to 26 percent. According to Jason DeParle of The New York Times, for women aged 30 and below, out-of-wedlock childbearing has become “the new normal.” While in 1960 almost 70 percent of Americans aged 20 to 29 were married, today only 25 percent are married — and for those who do marry, the divorce rate remains high. How will these changes affect America’s workplaces, faith communities, and economy in the coming decades?

 

At this event, Mary Eberstadt, Nick Schulz, and W. Bradford Wilcox will discuss these and other recent changes in American family structure, examining important economic and cultural consequences on the horizon.
