Teen Motherhood Hits All-Time Low
What is more, the decline is concurrent with drops in both the rates of teen pregnancy and abortion. Only four percent of girls 15 to 19 were pregnant as of 2013 and just one in every 100 girls had an abortion that same year.

Pew notes one major change since the Baby Boom. While most teen moms in the '50s and '60s were married, the rising age of first marriage means that most teen moms today are not married. About 90 percent of teen births today are to unwedded mothers; in 1960, 85 percent were to married mothers.

All of these numbers only get us part of the way to an explanation for declining teen childbearing. Pew researchers Gretchen Livingston and Deja Thomas offered several ideas. ...

*their reasoning for delaying family life is pure selfish. They can't do what they want when they want when there are other responsibilities to tend too- children, bills, etc. It's not economics. Silly ol Jim.

The Quiet Christian, let me introduce you to me. Married at 17, first baby at 17( total teen mom), second baby at 19 (still a teen mom)....11 years past and I'm still married and a sahm. It's definitely a case of but for the grace of God there go I. Had God not intervened I would no doubt be the woman you speak of. Sadly,I know very few women my age who are in a stable marriage serving the Lord, through motherhood if He so blessed her or through other means. Th

Economics, Jim? Please...

There are a few real reasons, but all have to do wit the destruction kf the nuclear family --

1. No self-respecting young woman or man is going to be tied down by marriage and child rearing at 18 or 19. They are off partying, shacking up, pursuing college, doing whatever other than getting married. No one wants a child in their teens unless they can obtain welfare dollars for doing so. So children are "prevented" via birth control or worse, abortion.

2. There is a concept that women should establish themselves in their careers and not focus on family matters, beyond the dog whom they'll ask their mothers to walk half-way thru the day. Children stop that upward progress.

3. Marriage itself and family life is attempted on a trial basis after one or both complete college. Living together unmarried with a dog is considered a "starter family." Time ticks by.

I have met almost no young people who are doing what my in-laws did. He was 20 and she was 18 when they married prior to WW II. While the Lord did not bless them with children until their 40s, He was sufficient in their lives.

Go read the original Pew research article that is associated will SA piece, an important answer can be found in the Pew research article that followed it, which is also implied from the first article. There has not been a great economic recovery. Families just can't afford children until later in life โ—
Gretchen Livingston and Dโ€™Vera Cohn wrote:
....
The age patterns in birth rates, and the continued overall decline, reflect trends that accompanied the onset of the Great Recession in 2007. The U.S. birth rate, which had been relatively stable, declined 9% from 2007 to 2011. The pace of decline has slowed, however. From 2009 to 2010, the overall U.S. birth rate declined by 3.2%, and from 2010-2011 the decline was a relatively modest 1.4%.

This slower decline may foreshadow what many experts have predicted: as the economy continues to improve, the fertility rate may be bottoming out and may begin a rebound in the years to come.

excerpt from, "Birth rates hit record low for those under 25, still on the rise for those 40+"

Of course it isn't purely economics. Women have to be cherished as wives and mothers. Husbands have to give them full support and honor in these roles โ—๐Ÿ‘
