According to a new study by the National Center for Health Statistics, couples who are living together have more unplanned pregnancies than those who are married, CBN News reports. Researchers found that about half of all births to cohabitating women are "accidental and unwanted," while only about 25 percent of births to married couples are unintended. Among single women not living with a mate, about 33 percent of pregnancies are unplanned. The study also found an increase in births overall to women living with their boyfriends -- from 14 percent in 2002 to 23 percent in 2010.
