Red States, Blue States, and Divorce: Understanding the Impact of Conservative Protestantism on Regional Variation in Divorce Rates

Why are divorce rates higher in religiously conservative “red” states and lower in less religiously conservative “blue” states? After all, most conservatives frown upon divorce, and religious commitment is believed to strengthen marriage, not erode it. Even so, religiously conservative states Alabama and Arkansas have the second and third highest divorce rates in the U.S., at 13 per 1000 people per year while New Jersey and Massachusetts, more liberal states, are two of the lowest at 6 and 7 per 1000 people per year.

New answers: early marriage and low income among religious conservatives are part of the story. Unpacking these variations, Glass and Levchak found that the high divorce rate among conservative religious groups is indeed explained in large part by the earlier ages at first marriage and first birth, and the lower educational attainment and lower incomes of conservative Protestant youth.

We appear to have entered a vicious circle: men are falling further and further behind women in educational attainment and in labor market success below the uppermost echelons of U.S. society; women are thus finding it difficult to find partners who even approach them in educational attainment and labor market success; and so women are either parenting boys alone, or they are co-parenting with men who are less than ideal role models for their male children.

What does your post have to do with Davis’s relinquishing her two children….Nothing!! Liberals will say she failed the first time by not aborting, but corrected her error by relinquishing her two children for the Cause….Liberalism!!

You being a leftwing nutjob see everything in racial terms. You have been trained to divide people by race, class, politics with no tolerance. It's the essence of your liberal being now.
Others who are not from the Zombie Cult of yours don't think like you.
Believe it or not, some people, the majority see Obama as a child or boy trying to fill a mans shoes. We ruled out voting for him because he has no experience.
The country is now paying the price for the boy in office.

I read the story and there was no mention of any murders at all. He was 20 years old, now 42, a model prisoner and totally remorseful for his stupid choices and mistakes during his drug addiction in his 20's. I hope that his sentence is commuted. Murderers, rapists and child molesters have lesser sentences and chances for parole. This man is serving life without parole, why? Because he fought the charges; the main supplier got 6 years along with other defendants who ratted to the cops. For being a middle guy in a small time drug operation. The war on drugs has caused over 40,000 to serve these overkill sentences.
It's time to stop it. It's madness. Imagine if he had been your son? This kid was not a high level gangster and people can reform.
His drug addiction because he was selling drugs. He was a Gangster Disciple, let Larry Hoover out-that is who he worked for. The one O'bama commuted in December was a shot caller--word out is that is he thinks he still is.

You're even dumber than I gave you credit for.

Tomatoes vary in flavor, as do many vegetables.

that's why there are so many varities, with new ones being introduced all the time.

But you're too stupid to know that.

RealDave's head gonna explode...

"...Children from single-parent and stepparent families have higher poverty rates and lower levels of educational and occupational attainment than children who grow up with both their biological or adoptive parents..."

"Growing up without both parents is associated with a host of poor child outcomes....
...They report greater substance use and risk-taking behavior, such as smoking, drinking, and drug use....
...these children are more likely to have sex at an early age....
...to be young and unmarried when they form their families"

They are falling over like flies, first Christie now McDonnell. Even when they look like they might have found some good guys they are still bad. Such is the state of the GOP right now, all thanks to those intellectual Giants that come from the Tea Party politics.

"Former Virginia governor Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen were indicted on Tuesday on corruption charges after a months-long federal investigation into gifts the Republican received from a political donor.
A former rising star of the Republican party was charged on multiple counts of fraud and conspiracy on Tuesday, in a dramatic escalation of a long-running corruption scandal in which his family was showered with gifts and loans by a struggling local tobacco entrepreneur."

"silly"
Why did you not refute any of what I posted? Because they were facts and you could not?
As for lunch, as I posted earlier to another liberal loon, lunch today, roast beef sandwich and a ice cold Kokanee Gold. Um good.
