Good marriages 'lead to a flourishing society,' says speaker


Marriage is not only a social good, but an economic one as well, said speakers on a recent panel on "The Future of Marriage in America."

"Good marriages truly lead to a flourishing society," said moderator Kate Bryan, communications director for the American Principles Project.

It is "statistically proven that children do best" in a traditional, two-parent household, said Wade Horn, who served as assistant secretary for children and families in the Department of Health and Human Services under President George W. Bush.
