You seem to be equating getting married with producing children. While that was once the case, many marriages today produce no children on purpose.
And for more than forty percent of all children born, the parents are not married. That rate is a whopping 72 percent for black women.
A bigger issue might be the differences in productivity as working adults between illegitimate children vs. children born to a married couple. Assuming they work as adults.
