Bringing Back the Shotgun Wedding.
Furstenberg, Frank F., Jr.
Public Interest, n90 p121-7 Win 1988
Critics who advocate encouraging pregnant teenagers to marry are mistaken. Teen marriages are distinctly less stable than marriages that occur after age twenty. Later marriers are less likely to be on welfare and are likely to have more education and fewer children. A hasty marriage makes a bad situation worse. (BJV)
