Even liberals are starting to get it. This excellent report I found on the left wing Moving Ideas Network: "I Can't Give You Anything But Love: Would Poor Couples with Children be Better Off Economically if they Married?" concludes definitely that waiting to have children until you are married and staying marries is significantly better than being single with children or even cohabiting. What was most interesting is that for a single parent it was better economically to have a non-romantic roommate than a romantic roommate.
