So I was reading an article today on a news site I don’t think I can link to here. They were talking about the “war on poverty” and how one of the “mistakes” they made was telling single moms to get married as this helped them out of poverty. It seems that out of those that did there was a 60% divorce rate and most ended up worse off than they were.
So, in typical worldly thinking they blamed the problem on the women getting married vice on the fact they failed to stay married. I don’t think it even occurred to them that the problem was the divorces and not the getting married part.
The Typical Worldly Thinking Is To Divide And To Crush
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:31-32
Whereas In God's Plain The Woman's # 1 Cheerleader Is Her Husband
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Psalms 31:28
It's So Simple Even A Fourth Grader Can Figure It Out
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD. Proverbs 18:22
I don't know the article, but perhaps the point was not "marriage" per se, but merely the advice to get married for the express purpose of financial support. Marriage is not merely an economic maneuver.
