Author Alex Kotlowitz looks at how the decline of marriage and the rise of divorce is affecting American families socially and economically. Kotlowitz visits Oklahoma (which has one of the highest divorce rates), where he says too many people marry capriciously; and inner-city Chicago, where he says too many people are too cautious about marriage. He also interviews social scientists, "marriage movement" activists, Oklahoma governor Frank Keating and Bush-administration official Wade Horn.
