The Economic And Cultural Impact Of Marriage On Men, Women, And Children

Sociologist W. Bradford Wilcox joins Federalist Radio to discuss marriage and the baby carriage. His research dives into the economics and social impact of getting married.


W. Bradford Wilcox is Director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia, Professor of Sociology, and Senior Fellow at the Institute for Family Studies. On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Wilcox shares his research on marriage, families, and how the structure of both impacts economics, class divides, and individual success.

“We do know that when it comes to your happiness in life, marriage tends to give you a boost, and that kids tend to reduce your happiness…of course they also tend to increase your sense of meaning in life,” Wilcox said.

Domenech and Wilcox explore why men are delaying marriage and the rise of cohabiting relationships.
