I've been seeing references to a recent New York Times article about the current trend of births in the U.S. to women out of wedlock. Wow, now I know why: "More than half of births to American women under 30 occur outside marriage."
From a racial background, 73 percent of black children are born outside marriage, compared with 53 percent of Latinos and 29 percent of whites.
I learned about that NYT article today at lunch while skimming through the new Time. Since we're talking about changing trends, look at this graphic about interracial marriage.
It ain't Leave It To Beaver anymore.
