ROCKFORD, Ill., April 4 /Christian Wire Service/ -- Dr. Allan C. Carlson, President of The Howard Center for Family, Religion and Society and International Secretariat of the World Congress of Families, will be a guest on the “Extension 720 Show with Milt Rosenberg” tonight, April 4 from 9:00-11:00PM CST. Carlson will discuss divorce and the families it affects with two other experts: JEAN BETHKE ELSHTAIN, professor of social and political ethics at the University of Chicago’s Divinity School and co-editor of The Meaning of Marriage: Family, State, Market, and Morals; ELIZABETH MARQUARDT, affiliate scholar at the Institute for American Values and author of Between Two Worlds: The Inner Lives of Children of Divorce.
“It is estimated that almost fifty percent of marriages in America today will end in divorce. What does that statistic say about the current state of marriage in this county? And how does this high divorce rate affect the children of broken homes?” Listen tonight for the answers.
