Tis conference brought together scholars from economics, history, law, philosophy, psychiatry, and sociology to share with each other the findings of their re-search on why marriage, understood as the permanent union of husband and wife, is in the public interest. A consensus developed among the participants in favor of sharing more widely the fruit of their collaboration.  Te Witherspoon Institute is an independent research center located in Princeton, New Jersey. It is not connected to Princeton University, the Princeton Teological Seminary, Te Center for Teological Inquiry, or the Institute for Advanced Study.
