Research has found that women are more likely to be hurt in car accidents. One of the reasons for this may be because seat belts are not necessarily designed with a female body type in mind. Minnesota residents will likely be surprised to learn that crash test dummies are only designed to represent one type of woman.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 40% of all U.S. children are born to parents who are not married to each other. This marks a significant increase in recent years as the percentage was 18.4% in 2007. Not being married to the other parent poses more problems for a father. In Minnesota, the mother's rights are typically established when the child is born. Fathers, on the other hand, will have to take steps to establish paternity in many cases.
