This unique survey provides detailed information on marriage and divorce in Utah where national data fall short. Specifically, this survey gives precise representative results of the current status of marriage and divorce in Utah, including marital quality. The findings in this report have implications ranging from programs for marriage education to public policies that support marriage. Perhaps the most compelling finding from these data is that the overwhelming majority of Utahns highly value the essential institution of marriage, and believe that a statewide initiative to strengthen marriage is a good idea. The great task that lies ahead for Utah citizens, faith communities, businesses, organizations, and local government and community leaders is to utilize the findings to develop new and helpful ways to strengthen marriages and families throughout Utah.
