Senior Fellow M. Christian Green writes on the effects of "Divorce Culture" on Bystanders

Print Page


Senior Fellow M. Christian Green recently published an article entitled “‘There but for the Grace’: The Ethics of Bystanders to Divorce” in Propositions, a newsletter produced by the Center for Public Conversation of the Institute for American Values.  The article is an excerpt from a paper Green wrote for the institute's “Does the Shape of Families Shape Faith?” project. She suggests that divorce might not best be viewed merely as a personal choice only affecting the couple and immediate family, but one that impacts those in the broader culture as well. Placing divorce in conversation with the burgeoning field of cultural trauma studies and social contagion, Green offers an insightful look into the effects of the “divorce culture” on bystanders. The article can be found by clicking here.
