'Americans get an F on marriage'

     The statistics are startling: More than 40% of all babies born in the United States are born to unmarried women, and the number of new marriages among American women over the age of 15 has declined by roughly 50% since 1960.
     "Americans get an F on marriage," says WSU Associate Professor of Anthropology, Dr. Nancy McKee, who will discuss the reasons behind the numbers at three free, non-credit events, open to alumni and current students.
     The October seminars will be held in Everett, Richland and Spokane. Alumni can get more details and register at the alumni events page. Students should go to the current events page.
