Our politicians always say they're looking for ways to promote economic growth. But the best way to improve Americans' finances might not be what you think. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. With all the inflation and economic uncertainty of our world today, it's time to turn to the one thing that's been proven to create financial stability--the family. Did you know that men who are married make an average of 27% more than those who aren't? And that's not all. Studies show that married men are more responsible with their finances. Unmarried men have an average net worth that's 63% less than married men. These are examples of how the family contributes to the economic growth of a nation. And stable families mean a stable nation. The Marriage and Religion Research Institute of the Family Research Council asks you to stand with us in promoting marriage to your friends, family, and most importantly, your children.
