Society just keeps getting healthier and healthier as we approach our final destination: utopia!
Forward march – into the future!
More babies were born outside marriage or a civil partnership in England and Wales in 2021 than within.
It is the first time that has happened since records began in 1845, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.
There were 624,828 live births in 2021, it reported, of which 320,713 (51.3%) were registered to women who were not in a formally recognised relationship.
The figures reflect a long-term trend during which the number of marriages has declined while more couples have decided to cohabit instead.
Age makes a big difference, however. In 2021, new mothers aged 30 and over were almost twice as likely to be married or in a civil partnership (60.5%) than those under 30 (31.2%).
The average age of mothers increased to 30.9 in 2021, while the average age of fathers remained at 33.7.
Only 30.9? Why not 60.9? After all, women have to have time to take at least a million zillion gillion cocks before they decide to settle down.
It’s a little thing I like to call “democracy.”
At least 30.9-year-olds are smart enough to know that they don’t need no man.
