Pregnancy Before Marriage in Denmark discussion

Posted: 27 Jul 2013 5:13PM GMT
Classification: Query
What information is there on the attitude of the Danish people when a female became pregnant and was not married?

If a single woman became pregnant, did they leave their families because of shame? Was the stigma unbearable that a girl/woman would run away in the 1860's to the USA.

Would a man marry a pregnant woman to protect her reputation and accept a child that was not his?

I have a great grandmother, born 1868 in the USA, whose paternal parentage is questionable possibly???

What was the Lutheran church's position on this problem? Did they shun their parishioners?

Thanks for any insite anyone might have or any written information to read,
