P. L. Chase-Lansdale, M. A. Vinovskis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In order to decrease out-of-wedlock births, government policies should be directed toward helping young couples stay together rather than discouraging marriage and focusing almost exclusively on the young mother and her child. Also discussed are attitudes toward marriage, father's role, stability of early marriages, children, and benefits of marriage.
