It is a well-documented fact that for all teenage couples who marry, the marriages of those who do not have children in the first year of their marriage survive more than twice as long as the marriages of those teenage couples in which the wife does give birth within the first 12 months of the marriage. Therefore, many divorces could be avoided if teenagers who marry were encouraged to seek counseling on birth control as soon after marriage as possible.
The evidence regarding teenage marriages supports the authorâ€™s conclusion only if
A in those couple to which a child was born within the first 12 months, there is not a significant number in which the wife was pregnant at the time of marriage
B the children born during the first year of marriage to those divorcing couples lived with the teenage couple
C the child born into such a marriage did not die at birth
D society actually has an interest in determining whether or not people should be divorced if there are not children involved
E encouraging people to stay married when they do not plan to have any children is a good idea
give it a try and don't forget to explain your answer
If the wife was pregnant during the time of marriage then she will give birth wihin 12 months and these fact will not help in councelling. So the couple should not be pregnant. If they are then the purpose is lost.
