Well, I've been trying to say this for several years now. I just cry when I read these articles.

Why ‘The Family’ Matters in Economics by Michael Hendrix
Yet too many experts remain silent for fear of becoming collateral damage in America’s culture wars. Nick Schulz wrote Home Economics for these silent ones who have ignored the family’s role in the economy. He concludes as former Secretary of Education Bill Bennett did, finding that the “family is the original and best Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.”

Sure I'm Catholic, but prior to being actively religious there was this basic knowledge in Anthropology 101, that family mattered. It wasn't a political right, it was a natural idea coming from kinship. For several years know I've been warned I would be on the wrong side of history, casted off as an ignorant bigot, and unable to participate in public policy.

Marriage rates are falling, children are dealing with the consequences. As we follow this trend, we are ALL going to be on the wrong side of history written in the books as a civilization that brought itself down on its very own doing. Some civilizations end in war, disease, or famine. We're die over the breakdown of our most basic economic unit, the family and refuse to acknowledge its purpose and function..
