What if many of the challenges American society is facing today – declining happiness, “deaths of despair,” eroding civic engagement, insufficient upward mobility – all tie back to one major institution?

Brad Wilcox returns to the show to discuss his new book: “Get Married: Why Americans Must Defy the Elites, Forge Strong Families, and Save Civilization.” He and host Nic Dunn discuss the evidence for marriage and family being the biggest predictor of happiness in adults, why this institution may seem under attack in some circles, and what to do about it.
