Family Life in the News
Two interesting stories in the news this week. The first is that married people build wealth. The whole article is here and makes you wonder if it is just that more successful people marry and their success translates into more wealth, an ability to commit and work hard at a marriage is their secret or if the challenges of marriage require people to work harder than if they only have a responsibility to themselves.
The second article says that short children perform less well in measures of their intelligence than taller children. The hypothesis is that increased stress in the home affects the intelligence of children negatively. Certainly food for thought.
