The American Family Association’s news outlet reports:
The New York Times reports that the statistics represent a major trend slowdown between 2004 and a previous survey in 1990 versus a dramatic loss in two-parent homes and an increase in single-female parent homes between 1970 and 1990.
Mike McManus, co-founder of Marriage Savers, says the traditional family — and children who would otherwise suffer the devastating effects of divorce or dysfunctional homes — could use the good news. He calls the statistics “a good sign” and notes that “more and more marriages are staying together and fewer and fewer children are having [to suffer] these kinds of effects.”
