Chart: Marriage Indicators 1970-2008

These are not surprising indicators in my mind.
Disheartening but not surprising considering how marriage is view today on TV and movies, books and the news media. Not to mention our present administration.
A good reason why religious and lay leaders alike should look at a newly released report, The Marriage Index, co-published by the Institute for American Values and the newly established National Center on African American Marriages and Parenting (NCAAMP). Signed by a bipartisan and racially diverse group of scholars and leaders, the report proposes a tool, the Marriage Index, to assess the health of marriage as a U.S. social institution over time.
