A Press Release by Date.com talks mainly about the results of a poll Date.com conducted on their dating site (seems like these days everyone will release a press release about anything). The poll asked female members if they would wait for Mr. Right to come along to get married, and then have children or would they have children without the commitment of marriage. 58% of the respondents said they would not wait with only 42% saying marriage should come first.

The release never mentioned how many actually took part in the poll but I am surprised by the results. I would have thought that at least 75% of people would have wanted to wait until marriage before having kids. Every one of my friends would only want children after they are married so I am a little sceptical of these results. I have a feeling ,surprising results like this gives companies an excuse just to post a press release. Another example of this is, Chemistry.com survey.
