Marital demography: The immigrant difference

Emerging family-friendly towns in Europe

    Family Studies: The scholarly literature on family policies abounds with studies at the national level. Often central European governments establish measures for workers to balance work and family and policies that allow parents to obtain paid or unpaid leaves to care for their children. Yet the lives of most families revolve around towns, whether big or small, so towns or villages often provide kindergarten centers or parenting services for families with children. Nevertheless, scholars have paid little attention to family policies at the local level. There was not a coherent body of literature on such policies in Europe as of 2010, according to Francesco Belletti and Lorenza Rebuzzini, nor does it seem to exist yet.

    Aleteia: “Men who had slept with more than 20 women lowered their risk of developing [prostate] cancer by almost one third, and were 19 per cent less likely to develop the most aggressive form,” report researchers from the University of Montreal. The news for chastity gets even worse: “Men who said they had never had sexual intercourse were almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer as those who said they had.”

    Get Religion: Like I suggested earlier, people in public life that journalists embrace tend to “argue” that something is right, or “observe” certain truths to be self evident. Those on the wrong side of issues “rail” against them. They also “believe” that something “goes against God’s will” rather than, well, defend 2,000 years of Christian doctrine on a topic.
