Zhenchao Qian, co-author of the study and associate professor of sociology at Ohio State University, states that unwed mothers ie baby mamas have a hard time locking down a mate and IF they do finally get married… most tend not to marry quality partners.

When they do marry, mothers are more likely to have husbands who are significantly older and less educated than those of childless women.
