We have some interesting data from marri, the Marriage and Religion Research Institute of “Family” Research Council. This was released late last week.

  • Only 45.8 percent of American children reach the age of 17 with both
    their biological parents married (since before or around the time of
    their birth).
  • The Index of Family Belonging is highest in the Northeast (49.6 percent) and lowest in the South (41.8 percent).

 Aside from the fact that “traditional marriage” has a pretty bleak outcome, they cannot blame the gays (I’m sure that they will try). The heathens in the Northeast – where marriage equality is prevalent – are doing better than the presumably more devout folks in the South AKA “The Bible Belt.”

More information is available here. It’s important to note that this research is not published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
