40 Percent of US Pregnancies Out of Wedlock, ‘Shotgun’ Marriages Have Plummeted: Report
Some guy from “Institute of Family Studies” is quoted in this – I think that is the same organization that marriage-idolator and singleness-hater (Link): Bradford Wilcox works for, though I don’t see Wilcox himself mentioned in this.

(I believe in equality for women, but I am not a liberal feminist.)

Two out of every five pregnancies in the United States now occur outside of wedlock.
