The marriage mission: With the family in decline, can Catholic couples turn the tide?

Vol. 9 | No. 9 | May 3, 2024

On the cover: In an age of shrinking family sizes and rising living costs, the decision to get married seems more daunting than ever. But a new book with the blunt title “Get Married” argues that marriage’s benefits outweigh its supposed burdens. On Page 10, Elise Italiano Ureneck compares its findings to her own marriage experience, and on Page 14, Theresa Cisneros reports from a special retreat preparing engaged couples with lessons learned from strong, successful Catholic marriages.
