Nearly Half of All First Births in America Out of Wedlock, Study Says
The age at which men and women in America marry is now at historic heights, and as a result the number of children born out of wedlock has also increased, says a new study by a group of family researchers, who have found that 48 percent of all first births are happening outside of marriage.

On average, women are marrying at age 27, and men at 29 ‚Äď and the average age is still climbing due to economic and cultural reasons. At the same time, the age at which women have children is also increasing, but not nearly as quickly as the delay in marriage, according to the report, "Knot Yet: The Benefits and Costs of Delayed Marriage in America," released Friday by the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia and collaborators.

In fact, for women as a whole, the median age of first birth, 25.7, now falls before the median age at first marriage, 26.5. The report called the phenomenon "The ...

Well, John, The Unification Church, (the Moonies) agree with you, "Does love last longer in arranged marriages?". It might solve some problems and a Christian has to marry a Christian. I seriously doubt 12 year-olds have the responsibility or the skills to carry out a marriage in an American culture.

One big problem is No-Fault Divorce - The End of Marriage?. An interesting commentary by Albert Mohler. No, one has to put Divorce on Trial, because many out of wedlock children I would think are from divorcees, and a lot of fatherless children most certainly are.

So, I would agree to marry sooner is better than later, but at least wait until the fellow is 13!

In my opinion, it seems logical and godly for marriages to occur at early ages, like maybe beginning around 12 or so. This may or may not be shocking, but consider puberty. At this point, it only seems natural, like the way God intended, for us to satisfy our urges properly with a husband or wife. The world certainly has us conditioned to wait til 18 or so for marriage after we have years of so-called dating, fornication, and master------. Why bother and suffer with this period of "exploration?" When those urges develop, those youngsters should start looking for their mate. Even better, the search should begin before the urges. This way, when the time arrives, the man and the woman are there for each other and can get busy with really getting to know each other.

Look at the contrast that many churches teach.....put "youth" together when they are teens but then tell them that marriage should wait until they have an education and are older and "established" in a career.

Taught early about sex?? Boy, that's an understatement. Some school systems have begun teaching kindergardeners sex ed. What a crazy world. That's it, start teaching 5yr olds what sex is and be sure to familiarize them with it all using graphic pictures and books where they can use crayons to color in private parts.

unplanned pregnancy? What's this? Out of wedlock or not a pregnancy isn't "unplanned." The Creator of life, the ONLY ONE who can make life, planned it. Don't misunderstand me - im not endorsing premarital sex just correcting a silly statement.

We had baby four at home with the help of a wonderful midwife. When we were discussing the birth certificate, she gave us three options. The first was not unlike the one you receive at the hospital, mothers maiden name only. The second had my name, my husbands name, but needed to include my maiden name with the baby's. The third was a certificate that had only my husbands name and mine. She proceeded to tell us that the only "legal" notice would be the first as "the government didn't need the fathers name". We choose option three. My conclusion? Gleefully add another layer of heavy duty tinfoil to my hat! I simply cannot ignore the fact that the government of my country has no desire to acknowledge the family unit. And to my disgust, I find they seem to be hell bent on destroying it. On the good side, however, lest we forget, we aren't citizens of this place anywho; my kids' birth certificates were written, as were yours, before the foundations of the world!
Your thoughts and conclusions were right on. Thanks, your comment was a blessing to me!

All children registered with the beast are considered bass tards. Take notice on the birth certificate application where the name of the mother is her maiden name. Nowhere on the application does it show the father and mother as married. The birth certificate should be rejected on this point alone. Furthermore, whosoever signs the application and attests to it are liars if father and mother are married.
