A recent report by the Brook Advisory Centres, refers to the fact that in girls under 20, the numbers of illegitimate births and abortions have not shown any decline in the period 1966–77. It is also estimated that half the 40,000 teenage brides who marry each year are pregnant when they do so. It seems appropriate therefore, at this time, to look at the social and emotional factors that contribute to this situation.
