Children Raised by Single Mothers Fare Poorly

Statistics from multiple sources show that children raised by single mothers are more likely to commit murder and rape, go to prison, commit suicide, drop out of school, become involved in a teenage pregnancy, become runaways, and live in poverty.


This does not bode well for the 1.7 million babies born to unmarried women in 2007, according to a March 18, 2009 report by the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services.


As Jesus says in  Matthew 19:4-6, “Haven’t you read that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore, what God has joined together, let man tear asunder.”
