Couples who are experiencing challenges in their marriages wonder if their children would be better off if they stayed together or got divorced. While staying together simply for the sake of the children isn’t the best option, investing in making your marriage is. There are lots of benefits to being successfully married and providing a stable base for your children is one of them. Dr. David Ribar, a professor at the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research and the author of Why Marriage Matters for Child Wellbeing, joins the show for a discussion about the impact of marriage on the children.
