Avoiding Poverty

Avoiding poverty requires three things: finish high school; marry before having children; marry after the age of 20.  Only eight percent of the families who do this are poor, while 79 percent of the families who fail to do this are poor.  Children from married homes are more likely to do all three things and less likely to raise children who are in poverty.
