  • From a sociological perspective, the way to avoid the pattern and perpetuation of it, is to instil the virtue of marriage before sex, and certainly marriage before planning parenthood. Too often nowadays, couples willingly and knowingly have babies without being prepared to commit to each other, and that is no way to bring kids into the world. They need a commited couple to raise them, before being concieved.

  • AnuMeha, I'm not trying to be rude but you have to live it to understand. If my mom would have married my father I would have been a drug addicted mother of five before I was 20. It is best to develop a good relationship before the child is born but sometimes things just happen and most of the time it's for the best.

  • Are you for real? Like, seriously? There is nothing wrong with being a single mom or being an unwed mother at ALL. All that matters is love. Whether the child gets that from a man/woman couple, a single mom, a single dad, a gay couple, a lesbian couple, adopted, WHATEVER. All that matters is LOVE. LOVE is the answer and it can solve anything.

  • we women should get to know a man extensively before spreading our legs and getting pregnant. i know sometimes we take our time and get to know the men and things still don't work out but i think that would cut down on the amount of unwed mom's out there.

  • I am unwed mother. I have been with the father of my baby for 6.5 years. We both love each other and our daughter very much. There is nothing wrong with being an unwed mother.
