According to Paul R Amato, it is important for the government to strengthen the marriages. This paper will compare and contrast the arguments on why the government should strengthen the marriage relationships. To begin with, children who are elevated by the constantly married parents in a strong marriage have a chance of rising into well-balanced adults. Children’s who grows up with both of their parents married have better live as compared to other children’s who have different forms of the family. The children’s whose their parents have different family structure experiences the following disadvantages , they are likely to be poor, in the standardized tests they score lower, in the schools they score poor grades, they have high possibility to drop out of schools, they are likely to suffer from depression symptoms, they experience lower self-worth and lastly children have peer problems. When they grow to adults such children are likely to experience; high unemployment, the may incline to less revenue, they are expected to get low-status jobs, they are less likely to attend colleges, they may end up having non marital births, are likely to have weak ties to their parents and lastly they may end up their marriages ending to the divorce. Although some of the differences are caused by the difference in the family structure there is variation in some of the children. Some of the children brought up in a continuously married parent may also end up being poorly adjusted adult well-being. This means there are other factors affecting children wellbeing. The relationship between children and parents also affect the development of the child. That is why children with good parent structure may end up having poor adjusted adult life. Secondly, minority of the children in US grow in a constantly and positively married family. This is because a majority of the marriages in the United States are involved in the divorce. The divorce rate in the United States is high. Most of the children born are from non-marital births outside the marriage. Half of the couples live together during the time of bearing the child in a romantic setup. Those who are married are constantly involved in the conflicts. This affects the wellbeing of the children as they may end up developing depression symptoms and non-marital births at their adult age. This signifies why it is important to have a continuously married parent for the better comfort of the children. In United States, even if children grow up in an environment with unceasingly wedded parents, the environment is not conducive for their growth due to conflicts among the parents. Minority of the marriages in United States have a peaceful continuously married family. Due to this majority of the children in United States grows in a setup either in a no married family or married with a lot of conflicts making the environment not conducive to the growth of the children.
