A recent report by the Centers for Disease Control reveals that a record 40.6% of children born in 2008 were born outside marriage—a total of 1.72 million children. What does this mean for our society? What is the relationship between family formation and poverty? Bob’s guest is former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Jeff Kemp, now Executive Director of Stronger Families. They look at the problem and talk about solutions.
