       The Case for Marriage is a critically important intervention in the national debate about the future of family. Based on the authoritative research of family sociology Linda J. Waite, journalist Maggie Gallagher, and a number of otherscholars, this book's findings dramatically contradict theanti-marriage myths that have become the common sense ofmost Americans. Today a broad consensus holds that marriageis a bad deal for women, that divorce is better for children when parents are unhappy, and that marriage is essentiallya private choice, not a public institution. Waite and Gallagher flatly contradict these assumptions, arguinginstead that by a broad range of indices, marriage is actually better for you than being single or divorced-physically, materially, and spiritually. They contend thatmarried people live longer, have better health, earn moremoney, accumulate more wealth, feel more fulfillment in their lives, enjoy more satisfying sexual relationships, and have happier and more successful children than those whoremain single, cohabit, or get divorced. The Case for Marriage combines clearheaded analysis, penetrating cultural criticism, and practical advice for strengthening theinstitution of marriage, and provides clearn, essentialguidelines for reestablishing marriage as the foundation for a healthy and happy society.
