3.18.13 … nothing is typical … carriage before marriage …

culture, US, statistics, unmarried mothers, carriage before marriage , The Wall Street Journal:  Teen motherhood rates are down but 20-somethings are driving America’s all-time high level of unmarried motherhood, now 41% of all births. http://on.wsj.com/YjIrea

Today’s typical unmarried mother is a high-school graduate in her early 20s who may very well be living with her child’s father.

Despite her apparent advantages, however, she faces many of the same problems that we used to associate with her younger sisters. If 30 is the new 20, today’s unmarried 20-somethings are the new teen moms. And the tragic consequences are much the same: children raised in homes that often put them at an enormous disadvantage from the very start of life.
