Unwed moms likelier to stay that way
WASHINGTON, DC, United States (UPI) -- A provocative new study suggests women who have children out of wedlock have a harder time marrying than those who don`t -- and that those who do find a spouse often end up on the wrong side of a mismatch.

The findings suggest programs aimed at improving life for lower-income Americans need to focus on the issue of out-of-wedlock births, the study`s authors said.

'Women who bear children out of wedlock do not fare well in the marriage market,' said Daniel Lichter, a professor at Cornell University and a co-author of the study, which appears in the current issue of the journal Social Forces.

The unwed mothers are about 30 percent less likely to marry than to cohabit, compared to single women without children, the study found. And those who do marry are likelier to end up with an older, less educated, less economically advantaged spouse. ...

'Likewise, after seeing firsthand what adultery has done to families, I no longer think stoning is an excessive punishment for it. God's ordinances are just.'

I hear you. When you either see it firsthand or know how evil it is via the Holy Spirit, God's anger is so understandable. After you get it, it's God's patience that's so amazing.

As an aside, Neil, have you noticed that adultery (and maybe the other sins mentioned in the Ten Warnings) is usually accompanied by other sins in the Ten Commandments? For example, adultery usually is preceded by covetousness and interwoven with lying. Covetousness can lead to stealing and lying and sometimes leads to murder.

And so on.

This study didn't go far enough. And I also think the conclusion is something that's been taken for granted for decades. It may be fodder for heated discussions or anger but it didn't go far enough to galvanize people into action. For example, they should have studied the rates of child abuse and sexual abuse in the unwed/single home. Horrible things have happened because a unwed mom married or moved in with a man who then did terrible things to her children. And a number of those women even know what's going on but do nothing because their partner either brings in some income or because he fills some role 'romantically' in her life.

Horrible horrible things are happening out there. I babysit for an unwed mom and she's trying hard but man, those kids have been through it, even without criminal abuse, the situation itself warrents perversions in life. Childcare is a big issue, with a network of babysitters being called for in case one of us gets sick or something else happens. Rules and atmosphere within the home changes depending on the unwed mom's 'partner' at the time. And out there in the unregenarate world, there are single men who focus on single or unwed moms because they know these women are needy and will make less demands on them.Awful situation in 100 ways, at least.
