I think more and more people are having children outside marriage for whatever reason.  I think it’s pretty commonplace here in the United States too.  AND more and more people are having children with more than one person.

Edit: I think there are a variety of reasons for this.  One, many people do not believe in the legitimacy of marriage as a stepping stone to having children.  Secondly, strong social programs make it easier and actually better to be a single parent. Lots of social programs actually favor single parents.
