A new word to me- Bureaugamy
"A new pattern has recently developed in industrial societies. In a striking departure from traditional forms, approximately 1/3 of babies born are born to unmarried women. The result is a new kinship which can be called "bureaugamy," which involves a mother, child, and a civil servant supervising the transfer of resources."
