Dear Friends:

In an era when divorce rates are high and 55 percent of America's children live in homes missing at least one biological parent, the imperative of strong marriages -- of one man and one woman becoming "one flesh" -- has never been higher. Family Research Council is committed to strong marriages, which is why the work of our Marriage and Religion Research Institute, led by internationally recognized scholar Dr. Pat Fagan, is so important.

As Dr. Fagan has written, "the overwhelming majority of social science data supports the premise that the intact married family that worships weekly is the greatest generator of human and social goods and the core strength of the United States."

Take a few moments to visit the MARRI Web site to find a trove of materials demonstrating why worship, marriage, and family are so vital to one another and to society. A strong, vibrant America needs strong, vibrant marriages. There are no substitutes.
