Thank you for being part of the Institute for Family Studies conversation. You are one of nearly four million yearly visitors to ifstudies.org. Strong marriages and stable families are the vital building blocks of a healthy society. For most of human history, this was a truth that hardly needed to be stated.
But today, marriage and family have become culturally, politically, and even economically deinstitutionalized. This has led to a great divide in marriage and family in America.
The family must be reinstituted as a safe harbor for all Americans.
The Institute for Family Studies is dedicated to building a new pro-marriage coalition in America, and to educating men and women about how best to foster a marriage culture that includes all strata of society. Please stand with us by making a donation to Institute for Family Studies today.
Thank you for your generosity.
