Why is it no longer frowned down upon to have babies out of wedlock?

My grandparents told me when they was little in the 1950s that it was frowned down upon by everyone to have kids out of wedlock. You could lose friends and be shunned. Unmarried couples got married asap if the girl got pregnant, even among teenagers. Nowadays having kids out of wedlock is celebrated and the norm... show more My grandparents told me when they was little in the 1950s that it was frowned down upon by everyone to have kids out of wedlock.

Nowadays having kids out of wedlock is celebrated and the norm among many circles like the lower income class and minorities. Now increasingly middle class whites are having kids out of wedlock. So sad now.
