Levelling up begins at home: the urgent need to support relationships and families in post-pandemic Britain
Where is the American family headed as COVID finally seems to be lifting? On the one hand, the pandemic may have delivered yet another blow to an American family already reeling from dramatic declines in marriage and fertility. On the other hand, in the face of trauma and tragedy, people often develop a new appreciation for family, which could prime the nation for family renewal. Ross Douthat, New York Times columnist, will discuss the impact COVID has already had on marriage and family life, as well as the effect the pandemic is likely to have on the family in America in the coming years. He will also discuss how America’s family divides—by class, partisanship, and religion—are likely to be affected by the pandemic’s fallout.
