Your hosts Dr. Grazie Christie and Ashley McGuire are joined by Dr. Brad Wilcox, a distinguished researcher who writes on marriage, parenthood, and cohabitation, and the ways that marriage, gender, and culture influence the quality and stability of family life in the United States and around the world. They discuss the importance of fatherhood in the life of children; the benefits of growing up in an intact family, and of marriage (and marrying early!); ways to lower the divorce rate; cohabitation; and more. Dr. W. Bradford Wilcox is Director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia, Professor of Sociology at the University of Virginia, and Senior Fellow at the Institute for Family Studies.
