Not a surprise. Let me guess the couple is older, better educated, possibly two breadwinners. Came from two parent homes, themselves.

The "average" rate of single parenthood overall, obscures the dismal rate for blacks. Fifty years after the launch of the War on Poverty, black people rarely marry.

Programs for permanent poverty enable irresponsible lifestyles. The penalize earnings, which teaches people to not work.

The flip side is the correlation-vs-causation problem. Poor people are less likely to be financially secure enough for a partner to be willing to marry them and risk tethering themselves to a money pit. Sex drive, on the other hand, stays constant.
