Robert Lerman co-authored the report “For Richer, For Poorer: How Family Structures Economic Success in America.” According to Lerman, a professor of economics at American University and a fellow at the Urban Institute, the financial effect marriage has on families is on the order of the impact of a college degree compared to dropping out of high school. The report concludes that children who grow up with two parents are more likely to follow a “success sequence” of graduating from high school, going to college or work, and getting married before the first baby’s born, which is likely to yield economic success and other kinds of well-being. After 35 years in Maryland, Herbert Teitelbaum, P’92, and his wife, Ruth Abram, Heller MSW’71, P’92, have decided on part-time residence adjoining the Denver home of their daughter Anna ’92.
