Welfare Discourages Marriage

I recently published an article entitled:

“How Welfare Discourages Middle-Class Marriages”

on this website.









You can read the article at:  http://sabas.net.au/articles/welfare-discourages-marriage/

In short, the article:

  • refers to a recent study that found that 2% to 4% fewer couples marry if doing so would cut their welfare benefits; and
  • gives just one example of how and why the Centrelink system is so easy to exploit or, more to the point, abuse.

If you have the chance, please let me know your thoughts about the article.
