Focused on the Family? Religion, marriage, and parenting in America

Is religion a force for good or ill in American family life? In this lecture, sociologist W. Bradford Wilcox takes up this question by exploring the ways in which religion shapes the quality and stability of American family life. He focuses especially on the impact that religion has on marital quality, marital stability, and parental investments in the United States. He also examines charges that evangelical husbands are more likely to resort to domestic violence, compared to other husbands in the U.S.

Bradford Wilcox is Professor of Sociology and Director of the National Marriage Project at the University of VirginiaHe is the coauthor of Soul Mates: Religion, Sex, Love, and Marriage among African Americans and Latinos (Oxford, 2016). His research is regularly featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, National Review Online, and The Atlantic.
