    Not a surprise when it's the state with the lowest average marriage age.

    Studies show that marriage, not cohabitation, is a very important component for a stable, successful society. It is also the best way to personal happiness, health and financial success. there are numerous studies that confirm this. Societies that abandon traditional marriage are on the downhill slippery slope. God's law and words and confirmed over and over.

    That is a good stat. Let's keep it that way!

    Stay committed everyone! It seems so obvious that divorce is not the answer. Living selfishly is not the answer.

    Being committed is something to be proud of. We need even more committed people to get involved everywhere they can.

    Turn off the tv folks! Our kids need you!

    Good for our young people. Happier families are the result when parents make the marriage commitment to stay together. Not always, I understand, but marital commitment is a strong influence on successful child-raising.
