When it comes to planning a family, many people do things in a very particular order. First, they find a parter they want to spend their lives with, then they get married, and then they have a baby (or two, or three).
Whether or not people want to admit it, society has introduced a stigma against those who have children before (or outside) of marriage.
Today, more people are choosing to go on different routes with their lives rather than stick to tradition. In fact, more often than not, people are having families in “unconventional” ways.
These very different generations of women had motherhood in common, but researchers made some interesting discoveries.
