Letter: Trolley buses too costly to keep Letter: Keep pedestrians and vehicles apart Letter: If there's a boom, then help Chch out Letter: All eggs in the northern basket Letter: More investment needed for cycling Letter: Replace imported holidays with ours Letter: A region to be proud of Letter: NZ-born man's fate was sealed by US Letter: Monarchy becoming more meaningless Letter: Small investors left out in the cold

OPINION: Tracey Steel (Letters, Jan 18) is correct in pointing out the obvious - that women don't have to be married to have children.

One of the biggest contributors to our present social mess has been the birth of children to women who are either unmarried or else living in sin with a man.

Now we're expected to agree that this is perfectly normal and proper, even if single mothers have decided to be kept by the taxpayers indefinitely as a valid lifestyle choice, or if children in de facto families are insecure and uncertain all round, as many are.
