Prague, March 23 (CTK) – Almost a half of children were born out of wedlock in the Czech Republic in 2015 and their share has been growing every year, according to the data of the Czech Statistical Office (CSU) released on Wednesday.

According to the CVVM polling centre, the number of people who believe that it is not necessary for parents to be married has been rising.

In 1990, after the fall of the communist regime, 8.5 percent of children were born out of wedlock and the number rose to more than 20 percent at the turn of millennia.

Last year, the proportion was 48 percent.

In 2005, half of people considered the wedding important for children’ education and one quarter believed that it is not important, now, the proportion has turned and a half of people do not believe that marriage is important for children’s upbringing. About a quarter of the polled are of the opposite view.

Prague is one of the regions with the lowest percentage of out-of-wedlock births.
