Majority of Britain’s children born out of wedlock for the first time in history


According to statistics released by the Office for National Statics (ONS) this week, for the first time in Britain’s history, the majority of children were born out of wedlock, Breitbart reports.

ONS, which has been tracking these statistics since 1845, stated that of the 624,828 born in England and Wales in 2021, 320,000 or 51.3% were born to unmarried/unpartnered mothers.

Between 1845 and 1978, the number of children born outside of marriage was typically less than 10%. However, by 1988, the number had risen to 34% and to 40% by 2000.
