Births outside marriage up nearly fourfold

Date: 2006-10-17

THE number of births outside marriage has almost quadrupled in the UK.

The Office for National Statistics' Social Trends report said the increase - from 12 per cent in 1980 to 42 per cent in 2004 - is largely due to a sharp increase in the number of couples living together without tying the knot.

The report found also that households are becoming smaller, with more people living on their own, while young people are tending to stay with their parents for longer due to high property prices and student debt.

The ONS researchers also expressed concerns about obesity and the number of people who were drinking excessively

Very often users of online dating services have a stack of profiles next to their PC and ta...“I went out with one woman who was smart, attractive and engaging. On the fifth date, she bursts into tears. She said she had lied about being single when she was really going through a divorce and had a child. Her husband had cheated on her ... and now I’m thinking, ‘What do I do? Do hit the road, only adding to her opinion that all men are jerks? Or should I try to be understanding?’ It put me in an awkward spot ... But, in the end, I couldn’t get over the lies.”- 50-year-old Chicago managemen...
