    60% of young moms unwed, U.S. says

    Births to unmarried mothers up from 31% in 2005 to 36% in '11
    By Frank Bass

    More than 60 percent of new mothers in their early 20s aren't married, the U.S. government said Wednesday in a report that underscores concern about the well-being of the nation's young children.
    The total number of births to unwed mothers increased to 36 percent in 2011 from 31 percent in 2005, the earliest year for which data are available, the U.S. Census Bureau said in the report. The bureau said 4.1 million women reported that they had given birth in the year covered by the survey.
    The high rate of children born to young, unwed mothers is significant because the parents are more likely to have less education and have lower incomes than married families. Their children are likely to be poor and have developmental delays.
    "The poorer developmental and behavioral outcomes experienced by children living in cohabitating households may be due in part to family instability," the study's authors wrote. Forty percent of children will probably live in a broken family before reaching the age of 15, they said.
    The percentage of young unmarried new mothers contrasts with the 17 percent of new mothers in their late 30s who aren't married.
    About 32 percent of new moms between the ages of 25 and 29 were single, the Census Bureau said.
    The report showed wide variations in the number of births to unwed mothers by income, race, state of residence and place of birth.
    The share of unmarried mothers ranged from 69 percent in households where income was less than $10,000 to 9 percent for those earning more than $200,000

    Kemestry these statistics cannot be seen in isolation. For every unwed mother there is an unwed father...don't forget that. These statistics are not good but marriage is not necessarily the solution. Men who impregnate these women need to see themselves as part of the problem. It takes two to tango...perhaps what these young women need to do is OPEN THEIR EYES AND CLOSE THEIR FEET.:lol:

    Is anyone really surprised? This is the consequence of feminsm(White Terror Dominations little cousin) in society. It succeeded in removing the father from the home and empowering the mother into a state of delusion.

    I love this one. "It's nothing but a piece of paper." LOL. Well, if it's nothing but a piece of paper, what's the problem with signing it? After all, it's nothing but a piece of paper, right?

    I absolutely agree!

    The voice of Sharazad Ali speaks! Yes, I am one of the few Black African American women who agrees with what you have written in regards to that awful feminism movement that came on on the back of our CRM. We just didn't need that but so many Black men and women latched on that white women movement and let go of our plight. That movement helped to remove the Black man, not only from the home, but also from his 'manhood'! It is an effeminizing movement at best, in my opinion. Then the empowered and off centered Black women, ironically ended up doing the same thing she was helped to accuse the Black man of doing!--of which is that she believed the Black man abandoned his children, but by the Black woman depending on the American welfare system [her White husband and mistress system] to raise her own Black children or to give her the job that the government would not give to the Black man, the Black women in turn completely abandoned her children!!! She left them to the Day Care centers or the After School Programs or etc. of America, and dared her children to speak out against her! They could continue to hate the absent Black fathers, but were encoraged to see their hard working mothers as being the solution when, they only did just what they had been tricked into doing against the Black men! As a result Black children are actually worse off, in their behaviors and their reasoning, and their behaviors in school has also prevented them from being able to excell in academics and etc. What a mess!

    You speak truth to power Shikamaru, and this explains the underpinning of a mantra I use quite often: ... America is the Fall before Rome ...
