Freedom Trumps Family
There is an interesting newsletter called The Family in America (published by the Howard Center; 800-461-3113). Inside each newsletter there’s a section called “New Research.” In that section for June 2004 there are two revealing synopses from the Journal of Marriage and Family (vol. 66: 2004).
The first one reports on life-history data collected from 1,289 Dutch women by three Dutch scholars. According to the synopsis:
– “The Dutch researchers calculate that having divorced parents increases the odds of divorce by 27%….”
– “‘Couples who cohabited prior to marriage have a higher risk of divorce’ (29% higher) than couples who did not….”
– “‘Women who attended church when living at home are 20% less likely to divorce’ than peers who did not attend.”
– “The Dutch scholars report that…’full-time working women have 29% higher odds of divorce than nonworking women’….”
