Marriage is one of society’s oldest institutions, and research suggests its importance hasn’t faded with time. Here to discuss the numerous benefits of marriage, as well as its role in the “Millennial Success Sequence,” is Dr. W. Bradford Wilcox.


Brad Wilcox is a visiting scholar at AEI and a professor of sociology at the University of Virginia. He directs the Home Economics Project at AEI, and is the director of the National Marriage Project at UVA. You might be familiar with his writings in the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, National Review Online, the Atlantic, and many other publications.
