Supporting Marriage in the 21st century
By The Mothers' Union
This information paper from the Mothers' Union, which had the support of marriage at the heart of its aims since it was founded, looks at the current trends affecting marriage and the impact on individuals, children and society. It offers some statistics from a number of sources on attitudes to marriage and effects of cohabitation. The benfits of marriage for the physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing of the partners is discussed. The impact of breakdown is reviewed. Suggestions are made as to how ordinary Christians can support marriages and a short list of resources and organisations are included. It is well set out and easy to read and would be a good starting point for a parish or group to consider it's policies for the new millenium.
