      As is the case in Western industrialized countries, Japan is seeing a rise in the number of unmarried couples, later marriages, and divorces. What sets Japan apart, however, is that the percentage of children born out of wedlock has hardly changed in the past fifty years. This book provides the first systematic study of single motherhood in contemporary Japan.   The percentage of births to unmarried women in both the United States and Canada has been rising sharply, but the rates are way behind northern European countries, a new U.S. report on births shows.

      Births to unmarried teens as a percentage of all births have risen over time, from 2 percent in to 10 percent in This percentage is affected by several factors: the age distribution of the population, the marriage rate among teens, the birth rate among unmarried teens, and the birth rate among all other women. The U.S. has experienced a dramatic increase in births to unmarried women in recent decades--from 4% of births in , with most of the babies then adopted, to more than 30% today. Melissa Ludtke's book is the only in-depth analysis of this radical change in family formation to compare and contrast the lives of these mothers of varying ages and economic circumstances.

        Further societal changes made unmarried childbearing, not just sex, more acceptable, such that half of births from nonmarital pregnancies today are intended. These changes swamped the Pill’s ability to reduce the chance of pregnancy. Births to single mothers, per 1, single women in the U.S., more than doubled over this period. The book is based on interviews with low-income single mothers. One of its conclusions is that these women see motherhood as one of life's most fulfilling roles — a rare opportunity for love and joy, husband or no husband.
