Just out of curiosity what is the stigma behind being an unwed mother? 

Why is it so important to marry BEFORE you have a child? 

Why is it that women who have children before marriage,statistically have a lower IQ than those who don't? 

I want to know your true thoughts& feelings on this issue so feel free to go ANON

I guess that depends

is she in a long term relationship and BC failed, or does she have 5 babies by 4 daddies in  7 years?

No I don't. Some people just don't want to marry and many people should be/get married just because they have a child together.

Who cares? I don't see how it matters anymore with how many marriages end up in divorce.

I don't judge or look down simply because it's not my place to. I don't care if she's married or not. It was their choice to have a baby and to do what they wanted from that point on. It doesn't affect me so I don't go poking my nose into it.

I don't think I would look down on someone simply for not being married.  But, I would look down on someone who bounces from relationship to relationship, creating a child with each new man.  That is just gross and shows the lack of self-respect on the part of the woman.  If she doesn't respect herself, how can I respect her?
