W. Bradford Wilcox, Director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia, delivered a lecture at the Basilica of Saint Mary as part of our 2019 Summer Faith and Culture Series. 

His lecture is "The Happiest Wives: What do faith, feminism, and family men have to do with the quality of marriages in America?" He discusses the role that religious faith, as well as feminism and men's family contributions, plays in fostering higher-quality marriages in America. 

Wilcox is also visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a senior fellow at the Institute of Family Studies. 

This lecture was recorded on July 25, 2019. 

Founded in 1795, the Basilica of Saint Mary in Old Town Alexandria is the first Catholic parish established in Virginia. Pope Francis named the church a minor basilica on December 6, 2017 due to its important role in the growth of the Catholic Church in North America.
