Do children born out of wedlock run a greater risk of having problems in life?

  • They have less care.

    Yes, children born out of wedlock run a greater risk of having problems in life, because statistically they have worse outcomes. Children born out of wedlock often have mothers who do not let the fathers be a part of the children's lives, or the fathers do not want to help the children.

  • Yes, children born out of wedlock risk more problems in life.

    Children born out of wedlock run a greater risk of problems in life, primarily because they usually grow up in a home with only one wage earner (or possibly no wage earners). Parental wealth and parental education levels are the primary determinants of a person's life outcomes, and both of those factors are associated negatively with births out of wedlock. A child born to two well-educated, wealthy, cohabitating parents who simply choose not to marry would not be at a significant disadvantage to a child of identical parents who were married. Unfortunately, most children born out of wedlock do not fall into that category.

  • Children born out of wedlock do not run a greater risk of having problems in life.

    Children born out of wedlock do not run a greater risk of having problems in life. Most single parent households run as efficiently as a two parent household. I think it all depends on where they live and how they are raised. With enough support from one parent they can go on to live healthy, average lives.

  • No, it depends on how they are raised.

    No, children born out of wedlock do not run a greater risk of having problems in life. As long as they are in a loving and stable environment they wouldn't have a greater risk then others. It is more important that they have love, security, and are taken care of.

  • No They Do Not

    I do not believe children born out of wedlock run a greater risk of having problems in life. Marriage is like a contract in today's world, it has lost its importance, especially with the onslaught of divorces. Marriage is created by man, its not a requirement of society. Some people may feel it is, but truly it is not.
