No Wedding No Womb is a declaration and acknowledgement that the out-of-wedlock situation in the black community has reached a critical mass. It is a call for both men and women to take into account the trauma that motherless or fatherless children experience when procreating is taken so cavalierly. The scars are long-term, and often for life.The ideal for kids is to have a functional household where bothparents are committed to providing financial and emotional support to their kids.But NWNW doesn’t NECESSARILY equate to marriage, per se, (but I’m not going to front, I believe that’s the ideal) but commitment–a lifelong partnership between mother and father.

Of course there are exceptions, but they do not make the rule.No Wedding No Womb also fights against the normalization of baby momma and daddy-ism. Clearly as a whole, this mentality is NOT working for us as a community.
