The following points prove that the family in America is in the worst shape ever...
#1 The marriage rate in the U.S. has fallen to an all-time low. Right now it is sitting at a yearly rate of 6.8 marriages per 1000 people.
#2 Today, only 44.2 percent of Americans in the 25 to 34 year old age bracket are married.
#3 Only 51 percent of all adults in the U.S. are currently married. Back in 1960, 72 percent of all adults in the U.S. were married.
#4 Back in 1950, 78 percent of all households in the U.S. contained a married couple. Today, that number has declined to 48 percent.
#5 In the U.S. today, more than half of all couples "move in together" before they get married.
#6 The divorce rate for couples that live together first is significantly higher than for those that do not.
#7 For women under the age of 30 in the U.S., more than half of all babies are being born out of wedlock.
#8 In 1970, the average woman had her first child when she was 21.4 years old. Now the average woman has her first child when she is 25.6 years old.

#10 At this point, approximately one out of every three children in the U.S. lives in a home without a father.
#11 Without a father around, many single mothers in this country are really struggling to survive. About 42 percent of all single mothers in the U.S. are on food stamps.
#12 It is being projected that approximately 50 percent of all U.S. children will be on food stamps at some point before they reach the age of 18.
#13 Today, more than a million public school students in the U.S. are homeless. This is the first time that has ever happened in our history.

#18 Instead of being raised by parents, an increasing number of children in America are being raised by movies, television and video games.
#19 There are more than 3 million reports of child abuse in the U.S. every single year.
#20 The U.S. actually has the highest child abuse death rate in the developed world.
