The Kristin Anderson Moore Lecture Series

Kris Moore

Raising awareness of issues related to child well-being

The Kristin Anderson Moore Annual Lecture was created by Child Trends’ Board of Directors in September 2006 to honor Kris Moore’s years of leadership as President of Child Trends, from 1992 to 2006. The Lecture is an opportunity for Child Trends to raise an important issue related to children’s well-being and to encourage thoughtful public discussion of that issue. The intended audiences for the Lecture include the public policy community, the research community, the philanthropic community, and the media. The Lecture and accompanying commentary is published and disseminated by Child Trends. More about the lecture series.

2008 Lecture Series

Marriage: Love It or Leave It?

Featuring Ronald Mincy, Ph.D., Columbia School of Social Work

2008 Lecture: Ron Mincy

Date: December 12, 2008

Presenter: Ronald Mincy

Location: Barbara Jordan Conference Center, Kaiser Family Foundation

2008 Lecture: Kristin Moore Commentary

Date: December 12, 2008

Presenter: Kristin Anderson Moore

Location: Barbara Jordan Conference Center, Kaiser Family Foundation

Marriage has become a divisive issue in the United States, both ideologically and socially, with substantial differences in family structure and father involvement across race and ethnicity, income, and education. Today, nearly four in ten births occur outside of marriage, cohabitation is rising, and nearly half of all marriages dissolve. Efforts to strengthen marriage have been driven by considerable evidence that family structure matters for the health, wealth, and happiness of both adults and children. However, even if people agree on the desirability of marriage, or on the value of healthy marriage, the challenges to fostering marriage are substantial.

Child Trends is concerned about this topic because of evidence that children develop best in families formed by their biological or adoptive parents, as long as the families are low in conflict. What should public policy do? Is it time to move on to other issues? Or are there reasons to keep marriage on the policy and program agenda?
