Sociologist Brad Wilcox on new book: “Get Married”

Statistics on marriage and family formation in modern America seem to get worse year after year. Why is this the case, and what can be done about it? Prominent sociologist Brad Wilcox joins host Garrett Snedeker for an in-depth discussion of Wilcox’s new book Get Married. The book describes why America’s most fundamental institution matters for our civilization more than ever. As well as for men and women looking to establish strong, stable, and happy unions for themselves and their children.

Brad Wilcox is a professor of sociology and the director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia, the Future of Freedom Fellow at the Institute for Family Studies, and a nonresident senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. He studies marital quality; marital stability; and the impact of strong and stable marriages upon men, women, and children. The author and editor of six books, Wilcox has written for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Atlantic, and the National Review, as well as for the scientific journals such as the American Sociological Review and the Journal of Marriage and Family. A Connecticut native, he now lives in Charlottesville, Virginia with his wife and family.
