    Today the shocking facts are that 50% of all births are being born to unwed mothers and the majority of these women are in their twenties.

    Almost half of first babies in U.S. born to unwed mothers - CBS News

    What does that tell you Roguenuke?
    Has the big push in billions of taxpayer dollars in sex education for birth control and practicing safe sex worked?
    With all the different means of birth control readily available why is it that so many women in their twenties can't remember to take their pill or use countless other means of birth control ?

    The number one drag on the welfare system are single moms. They make up the majority of those we claim as living in poverty.

    Did they believe the big lie that a woman doesn't need a man and can do it all on her own successfully? Or is it she isn't responsible because the federal government allows her to be irresponsible with the many programs it provides for the single mother. So much today that all the funding she receives amounts to more than a couple both working at median income with children.

    Either she is very stupid or very sly and found a way for the government to take over where her parents left off.

    Ironic, when Roe v Wade was passed only 10% of births were out of wedlock. Today 50%.
    Where her parents left off?

    What - if my daughter is pregnant I'm supposed to support her and the child?

    I WILL - but that's because, when I was in that same position, my parent's DIDN'T. If a kid is so stupid that they are in that type of situation then they are not capable of being on their own. The kid (child) will only suffer.

    It's not a requirement, though . . . what we really should do is encourage wise decision making, improved values of self worth, reducing risky behaviors, and other such things that create the situation to begin with.

    Instead, when you suggest to people that we should start to push against promiscuous sex, etc, they get defensive. They'll argue that "sex is natural and we shouldn't discourage it, because that won't work anyway, they'll do what they want."

    Well, it might not have worked for me, but it worked for my sisters.

    But I'd rather such mothers be on government assistance than in a **** marriage. That's what happened to me and it was hell to escape from.

    In which case they have to go through a court anyways and they get half as well as court mandated child support payments. Divorced women raising their kids isn't 0.1% of the problem we are referring to here.

    Men, on the other hand, are living a little longer, and the difference between male and female life spans is decreasing. American men's longevity was about 7.8 years shorter than women's in 1972 but the difference dropped to 5 years in 2005. Perhaps women pay a price when they take on the roles traditionally assigned to men, especially the role of sole breadwinner.
    One word sums it up: Stress. Everything else you said, however accurate, is just details.

    But, apparently if a man is employed in a job that is more often dominated by women (nurse, teacher, childcare), he is more likely to do more of the household chores.

    The first article clearly states that women trade of career work hours for household/caregiving work hours. This is not the argument that was being made.

    The second argument makes the point that women who do traditionally male oriented jobs do less housework. Again, this is a trade off argument when the original argument was an addition argument.

    OK, now present the statistics that show single moms live shorter lives.

    And all still state that women still do more than men. It isn't too hard to see if you are actually doing it. Even when I work while my husband is off, much of the housework is left up to me.

    If you don't believe that women do more housework than men, disproportionate to how much each work in outside jobs, then you prove otherwise. I know what I am saying is true, despite you constantly trying to nitpick that it isn't.

    Nope, they say that women do more housework, neither actually make the argument that women actually do more work.
