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.

Marie Rogers (left) and Ruth Milliron, who are interior designers, talk about the challenges that newlyweds have when combining households.
“A lot of couples cohabit first, in part to try out the relationship and make sure it is solid. Our cultural scripts about what constitute a successful marriage these days represent a high bar. Couples aim to be financially secure before tying the knot. This and other prerequisites have contributed to the delay in marriage entry,” said Susan Brown, co-director of the National Center for Family and Marriage Research at Bowling Green State University.
