Marriage Keeps Families From Poverty

Marriage Keeps Families From Poverty

The joke is on feminism. We’ve been brainwashed to believe that women NEED higher education even if it means going deeply into debt. They NEED careers for all of the “what ifs…?” So now that many women have received higher education and careers, how is the state of our country? Is there far less poverty due to feminism’s influence upon women? NO! Everything feminism has taught is a big, fat lie!

In an article written by Glenn Stanton in The Federalist, Mr. Stanton wrote,

“Professor Bill Galston, President Clinton’s domestic policy advisor and now a senior fellow at Brookings, explained in the early 1990s that an American need only do three things to avoid living in poverty: graduate from high school, marry before having a child, and have that child after age twenty. Only 8 percent of people who do so, he reported, will be poor, while 79 percent who fail to do all three will. Sociologists have referred to keeping these things in proper order as the ‘success sequence.'”

Imagine that! The best chance people have of avoiding living in poverty is by graduating from high school, getting married, and having children, according to the latest research! Therefore, women don’t NEED to be taught to pursue debt-producing educations and careers, if it’s not what they want. Christian women need to learn to have meek and quiet spirits, be chaste, discreet, sober, good, and learn to be good homemakers. This will make their chances of getting married and having children much higher since most men are attracted to these types of women than they are to feminists. Women of godly character build up society, whereas feminism has degraded society.

“A consistent and irrefutable mountain of research has shown, reaching back to the 1970s and beyond, that marriage strongly boosts every important measure of well-being for children, women, and men. Pick any measure you can imagine: overall physical and mental health, income, savings, employment, educational success, general life contentment and happiness, sexual satisfaction, even recovery from serious disease, healthy diet and exercise. Married people rate markedly and consistently better in each of these, and so many more, compared to their single, divorced, and cohabiting peers. Thus, marriage is an essential active ingredient in improving one’s overall life prospects, regardless of class, race, or educational status.”

Should any of this surprise us? God created marriage and He called it good. He created Eve to be Adam’s help meet. Men need a help meet. They don’t want a competitor; they want a wife. The best wife is one who takes good care of her husband, children, and home. No, higher education degree or career makes women better at any of these. God’s recipe for younger women is to “I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully” (1 Timothy 5:14) so we shouldn’t be surprised that this is the healthiest way to live in every single aspect of life!

Marriage generates wealth largely because marriage molds men into producers, providers, and savers. Singleness and cohabiting don’t. Nobel-winning economist George Akerlof, in a prominent lecture more than a decade ago, explained the pro-social and market influence of marriage upon men and fathers: ‘Married men are more attached to the labor force, they have less substance abuse, they commit less crime, are less likely to become the victims of crime, have better health, and are less accident prone.’”

Dennis Prager has frequently said on his radio program that the quickest way to mature men is for them to get married and have children. If they are married to a godly, submissive wife, the chances for them to become great men is even much greater since women are huge influences on men for good or bad; Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands (Proverbs 14:1).

“Working for healthy, well-formed, enduring marriages is one of the most effective ways we can do the work of social justice. That the effort is not hip and trendy has no bearing on its ability to change lives for the better. Decades of research and the lives of real people make the case over and again every day, for good or for bad. Let’s resolve as a nation to choose and work for the good and halt the ever widening chasm of class.”

I have noticed that many Christians these days have a big concern for “social justice.” If social justice means how many define it, it is wrong since it leads to socialism and communism and is accomplished through the government’s redistribution of wealth. This has failed every place it has been tried since it discourages hard work but it’s being taught in the universities so the younger generations are falling for it hook, line, and sinker. There is no wisdom being taught there.

If social justice means individuals helping the poor and needy and speaking out against abortion and other evils, then it is good since this is what Christians are called to do but the greatest social problem our country currently is experiencing is from the breakdown of the family.

When families are healthy and intact, cultures are strong since families are the building blocks of cultures. Feminism has broken down these blocks and unless the family becomes healthier, our nations chance of recovery is slim. As they have thrown Christ and His ways out of everything, everything begins to crumble.

  1. I’m going to look for a part time job.
    Our marriage is not in a good shape and that’s my husband’s idea to improve it. I have serious doubts.
    Wish me good luck!
    P.S. could you make a post about videogames?

    1. I for one, will not wish you, nor anyone ‘good luck’. As a christian i do not believe in luck as it assumes nothing but superstition. Did you know that all asian grocery stores have the word ‘lucky’ in their title as they wont enter the store unless it is lucky or they fear it is cursed with bad spirits? One of the main reasons i wont use the word lucky in that context. However, all the best with your endeavours. And continue to pray without ceasing that any problems will be resolved and you will be able to serve your family at home.

  2. Being married in the Lord truly is the best way to mature a young man! My husband is living proof!! We were married very young and had our first baby when we just turned 20. I will always remember how hard he worked in those early years to provide for his family. We started out in a simple one bedroom apt. He worked so responsibly those days; it was not long before he was being promoted to a higher status in the workplace. Today we live in a beautiful log home he built with his own hands. God crowned all his efforts with success. What a man!!🙂Thanks for sharing this, Lori.

  3. “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falls; for he has not another to help him up.

    Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not easily broken.” (Eccl. 4:9-12)

    1. LOVED that addition, Ken. The book of Ecclesiastes is such a gem! Thanks for all of both of your efforts in maintaining this blog. You help so much in keeping me focused on my Biblical role. God bless both of you!!
