Reader’s Comment of the Day: Marriage protects children and saves us all money


In response to Kathy Gyngell: The Children’s Society should back marriage not bleat about more benefits, Phil R wrote:

Children in biological two parent families do better on a very single economic and social indicator.

They do better at school and behave better when they are there. They are less likely to become addicted to drugs or alcohol, they get better jobs, they are far less likely to be involved in crime and also their own children are more likely to stay married and have better outcomes.

The financial savings for the country of supporting marriage is enormous. If we fully supported marriage we would easily be able to solve our financial problems as a country without austerity.
