FRC’s Vice President for Policy, Peter Sprigg, pens an op-ed in today’s edition of USA Today on the benefits of marriage to society. Here’s an excerpt:
The legal and financial benefits of marriage are not an entitlement for every citizen regardless of lifestyle. They give an incentive to enter into the socially beneficial relationship of authentic marriage and give protection to the social institution of marriage.
Awarding such benefits to the unmarried makes no more sense than giving veterans’ benefits to people who never served in the military.
