On Monday, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council had lunch with Governor Romney in Baton Rouge. They discussed issues of concern to social conservatives, including the economic importance of marriage.
Gov. Romney had read a recent piece by Jason DeParle which appeared in the New York Times over the weekend about the expanding economic disparity between unmarried and married mothers, and the Governor made it clear to Tony that he understands not only the economic importance of marriage, but the cultural importance as well.
