What Brings Us Together
About the Guest
Single people assume having a child brings and keeps couples together. One woman said, "Better than a wedding certificate, we have an amazing daughter who will bind us together...till death do us part." This is part of a confusing cultural double-message that says you don't need marriage to have a baby, but you can rely on that baby to remain coupled. This is not true. A strong couple relationship requires dedication to each other, not a child. And, strong parenting flows from a strong marriage.
Do children keep a marriage together?
