I like the thought of "marriage education", particularly in a time where
comparatively fewer children have the examples of loving father-mother
relationships that form this essential natural education on the matter.I do have great concern for who, exactly, administers this kind of thing and
what their aim is, especially if it's some governmental source and not
from, say, a church or other morally or socially reputable entity.We
should also be careful about confusing correlation with causation; without
giving names, I know a couple that actually makes quite a bit of money, but
still gets into financial trouble with a deeper, more fundamental unrestraint
that also damages their relationship, independantly of monetary concerns. I
also know a couple who is not financially privileged in the least, but they
manage with what they can, and have a very strong relationship. Any financial
scapegoating or thoughts of "redistribution" regarding this matter
should be given due restraint.
This is something that actually does have an impact on families and children -
why aren't we funding this better and encouraging more support in it?
