Data from the U.S. Census Bureau revealed the number of children living in two-parent households increased to 71.1% in 2023.

The data relates to married couples who live together with children under the age of 18, as well as children who live with one parent and a step-parent, according to the Washington Stand. While many outlets apparently push the narrative of decline amongst two-parent families, the data does not defend these claims.

“After increasing from 67.3% to 69.4% percent between 2005 and 2010, the number has steadily crept upward from 69.2% in 2015 to 71.1% by the end of last year,” the outlet noted in their analysis.

We know that the very best environment for a child to be raised in is one where there is a loving mother and father. Clearly, the positive impact of growing up in a two-parent household begins long before birth, and in many instances, it is the difference between life and death for a child,” Center for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council director Mary Szoch told the Washington Stand.

“You need to pay attention to what goes on in that classroom, and you need to pay attention to what your local school board is up to. The Loudoun County people demonstrated that in spades. When I was Secretary of Education in the 1980s, touring the country and giving speeches, people asked, ‘Well, what can I do to improve my kids’ education? I want to get involved.’ I said, ‘Run for the school board.’ And people would laugh. They’d kind of dismiss it. Well, I think now a lot of Americans see how interesting that is,” Secretary of Education Bill Bennett told parents in 2023.
