    I have a theory that people such as my grandparents (who were married in 1964 and had my dad in 1965) that are married before having their first child are more likely to stay together forever, whereas people like my mum had her first child unmarried to my sisters dad, then split with him and had me to my dad again unmarried and also had my brother to my dad unmarried and again split with him.

    Looking at most peoples parents I know if they were married before they had their first child they are still together to this day and vice versa.
    I think this is due to the bond of marriage, when you get married you make a commitment to be with someone through anything meaning you LOVE them enough to make the vows whereas when you have children unmarried you merely have the commitment of a child and perhaps not love.

    I am not intending to offend anyone so apologies if I have It is just a theory I am planning on writing about.

    So If you could reply to this thread with:

    Married or not married (When they had their first child together)
    and Still together or split

    So If I were to reply to this thread I would with:

    Unmarried and split
    Unmarried and split.

    My parents weren't married when my mum fell pregnant and got married whilst my mum was pregnant with me.

    Unmarried and still together - they'd only known each other for three weeks when my mum got pregnant with me, they got married a year after I was born and are still together 26 years later.

    Since you love researching I'll give you a tip (feel free to tell me to eff off though!). Unfortunately your current method is very flawed. You wouldn't be needing to find out individual circumstances for the unmarried, but maybe something like finding out how long their parents were together before pregnancy, which you could separate into blocks (like 0-2 years, 3-5 years, or whatever) if you were going to properly analyse the data.

    This opens a whole can of worms though, with other questions you could ask so I'm gonna shut up I think I REALLY miss doing research!
    I didn't even think of all the other questions/methods I could have done until I had already posted the thread and lots of people have already responded so It wouldn't be accurate if I only asked more questions now as not all would reply again.
    Thank you for your help though
