"A Marshall Plan for Marriage" includes creative new proposals

A Plan for Rebuilding Marriage and Family in America | The Heritage Foundation.
Although this report was issued by a conservative foundation, its specific proposals are nonpartisan, creative, and focused on cultural recovery, not culture wars -- kind of like the original Marshall Plan. Its points are:

"Principle #1: The decision to marry is inherently economically beneficial to couples and their children, if any. Any form of financial penalty in tax policy that masks or subverts this reality and deters marriage should be eliminated."

"Principle #2: Policymakers and program managers should encourage pro-marriage messaging in existing government programs and other already available resources."

"Principle #3: States should recognize that a significant percentage of divorcing couples, especially those with children, would respond to reconciliation efforts and restore their marriages. States should develop policies and programs that maximize the reconciliation option."

"Principle #4: Policymakers should study, recognize, and reward success in marriage, recognizing the power of the bully pulpit and civic leadership to shape consensus and define progress."
