“The Number of Children Growing Up in Intact Families Is Rising… Amidst the negative news surrounding the state of marriage and the family in the U.S., a bright spot is beginning to emerge: the number of children being raised by their married mothers and fathers is slowly rising.

From the early 1960s until around 2014, the share of children living in intact families steadily nosedived from 87% down to around 62%.” – Washington Stand
