Research Suggests Views on Marriage are more Traditional among Poor People

According to a report from UCLA psychologists, poor people hold a more traditional view toward marriage and divorce compared with people of high or moderate income. This finding was a result of a large survey conducted about marriage, relationships, and values. It calls into question the effectiveness of the US Government program which spent $1 billion dollars to promote the value of marriage among the poor. Given the results that the poor hold a traditional value of marriage, is it fair to say that the government program was a success? Or was it a waste of money, unnecessary for this demographic?
