Traditionally birthing and raising a child outside of marriage was foreseen as shameful , however recently it has become a common practice by many women in America. Today one in three women bear children outside of marriage. The correlation between marriage and child birth has become increasingly diverse from one another in recent years. Nearly half of recent births are outside of marriage and planned births. The independent variables that directly affect the probability of having children outside of marriage are ethnicity, education, social economic status, family background, fertility control, age, duration since last birth, and cohabitation. These variables drastically change the chances of women having children without a spouse. The dependent variable is planned childbearing among unmarried women and is directly affected by the independent variables. The authors’ hypothesized that current trends have affected the social tolerance for unmarried child births in recent years with relation to the independent variables. Ethnicity can greatly increase a women’s chance of bearing children without a spouse.
