This Week on Family-Studies


The Institute for Family Studies and AEI released a new report by Wendy Wang and W. Bradford Wilcox, The Millennial Success Sequence: Marriage, Kids, and the "Success Sequence" among Young Adults

Alysse ElHage summarized the report's findings on the link between married parenthood and Millennials' financial well-being. She also interviewed journalist Regina R. Robertson about her new book, He Never Came Home. Amy Zeittlow and Naomi Cahn shared insights from their research on stepfathers, and Nora Sullivan discussed a recent study on how ambitious young women deal with the "trade-off" of career and marriage.
 

Marriage and Millennial Success

by Alysse ElHage

Millennials who put marriage before parenthood are more likely to be on track to the American Dream, according to a new IFS/AEI report. Getting married before having a first child reduces their odds of being in poverty by 60%.

Daughters, Father Loss, & Longing

an Interview with Regina R. Robertson

"Many women had such vivid memories of their fathers, from the smell of his cologne to his being he the world’s best tickler. It was amazing to hear about how much they loved their dads and all of the beautiful reasons why."

Prioritizing Family Over Career  

by Nora Sullivan

In a recent study, 68% of single female students placed in an all-female group said they'd prefer a higher-paying job with more hours to a lower salary job with fewer hours. But in a mixed group, only 42% chose the higher-earning job. 

Honoring Stepfathers

by Amy Zeittlow & Naomi Cahn

Today, more than 40% of Americans have at least one step-relative in their family. A stepfather faces unique challenges, so he needs to make extra effort to create a positive relationship.

IFS Around the Web

This week, AEI hosted a panel discussion of our new report, The Millennial Success Sequence. Also, Wendy Wang and W. Bradford Wilcox joined Ian Rowe of Public Prep Network to discuss the report on a Banter podcast. The report was also highlighted by Robert VerBruggen in National Review.

Dads, Kids, and Baseball

Subway library train

Posted: 12 Jun 2017 12:46 AM PDT

For the next six weeks, any member of the public in New York can head to subwaylibrary.com or download the New York Public Library's reader app, SimplyE, to have unlimited access to a wide selection of NYPL-provided e-books. The initiative also aims to promote the free Wi-Fi service at each of the subway's underground stations, which rolled out late last year. When users log onto the service, a link to the Subway Library website will appear, encouraging you to read a book instead of your Facebook feed.

Library Train is designed to look like the iconic Rose Reading Room with the seats and walls on each car made to resemble bookshelves (and a faux–Gilded Age ceiling to boot). The train is scheduled to run on the E and F lines between Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.
