Red Families v. Blue Families

I'm intrigued by the differences Naomi Cahn & June Carbone found between families in "red states" and those in "blue states."  Red Families v. Blue Families came to my attention by way of an All Things Considered interview with co-author June Carbone.  I was grabbed by the interview's intro, particularly:

"The states that voted Democratic in the last two presidential elections have the lowest rates of divorce and teen pregnancies. And the red states had the highest."

If that leaves you with questions, perhaps someone else asked them when the authors were on Talk of the Nation.  The transcript should provide some interesting reading while you're waiting for the book to be returned--place a request on it so we can notify you when it's available.
