NCFMR

The National Center for Family & Marriage Research (NCFMR) was established in 2007 to improve our understanding of how family structure is linked to the health and well-being of children, adults, families, and communities and to inform policy development and programmatic responses. Wendy D. Manning and Susan L. Brown codirect the NCFMR at Bowling Green State University. This project is supported with assistance from Bowling Green State University. From 2007 to 2013, support was also provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation.
Manning, Brown, & Payne published in JFI
Colleagues Susan L. Brown, Wendy D. Manning, and Krista K. Payne were recently published in the Journal of Family Issues (JFI) for their article, "Relationship Quality Among Cohabiting Versus Married Couples." Using data from the nationally representative 2010 Married and Cohabiting Couples Survey of different-sex cohabiting and married couples, the team compares the relationship quality of today’s cohabitors and marrieds.
