Don’t Have Babies Out Of Wedlock: Post Columnist Who Had A Baby Out Of Wedlock

Amid all of the head-smacking this Post piece on having babies out of wedlock has produced, two questions arise: In what world does a) having a husband guarantee that raising a child will be easier and b) having a husband guarantee that one will always have a husband?

She The People-land, I guess.

    There are no guarantees, but as Damon Runyon said, "That's the way to bet."

    There are no guruantees in life but there's what's likely, what's more than likely, and what's likely assured. C'mon black woman don't fool yourself if 73% of black children born out of wedlock it's no wonder we are disproportionally poor, suffering from poor health, less educated, and more likely to be incarcerated. Two parent households make a big difference and it's disappointing to see a black woman suggesting that it's a false goal. Kids probably look up to you...

    Yes, I agree with this post. It is not so good to have a wedding because you are pregnant. It will not help your relationship and could mislead you in future. It is better to have a baby out of true love. :)
