Perhaps this adorable little girl is wondering how many NON-TEEN parents actually marry each other, or perhaps she’s wondering what happened to the rest of this research finding.
Here’s the actual research finding:
Child Trends Facts at a Glance, 2005 cited data from the Fragile Families and Child Well-being Study that less than 8% of teen mothers marry their baby’s father within a year of the birth.
That little “within a year of the birth” thing seems kinda important, huh? By the way, it’s also a fact that many children can read. Many of them will likely read these ads on buses and subways–I can only imagine how those children of teen parents will feel.
