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.

Wendy Manning presents The Future of Marriage and the Family at Rotary Club of Toledo

The Future of Marriage & the Family

Dr. Wendy D. Manning showcases her research data and addresses concerns about the future of marriage and the family at the Toledo Rotary, 1/26/15.

There has been a sharp decline in the marriage rate.... Some people worry that Americans are rejecting marriage, they no longer want to marry, but when you survey young adults today, almost all of them expect to get married at some point, says Manning.
