I just read a article that says that out of wedlock births have hit a all time high in the United States. Here is a link to the article http://articles.news.aol.com/news/_a/37-percent-of-us-births-out-of-wedlock/20061121155609990014?cid=2194 what do you think of this? Should you be married to have children?

That's because more people are waiting to get married. They want the kids before they get to old.

Yes the article also said that teenage births are on a decline.

I don't think it's really necessary to be married to have children if you're devoted to each other. But, I'm sure a good portion of that percentage are unplanned pregnancies which is just stupid considering all the forms of birth control that are available.
