Fox News put out an article calling Americans to start caring about marriage in a tangible way. Being active about caring for our own marriages and creating programs that help build healthy marriages will alleviate many other social problems. This article is best summed up in the last paragraph. “Americans need to stop thinking of marriage as a consumer relationship-if we don’t, we’ll always want a refund or an exchange because there is no perfect product. But when we view marriage as a covenant between a man and a woman unto death, not as a throwaway consumer relationship, the chances are enormously higher for personal growth, better health, greater happiness, a longer life, and greater well being for our children.” (Weber, 2010)
