Montgomeryshire - Children out of Wedlock in 1800-1900's acceptable or not acceptable by society

I am interested in knowing what the history/acceptable and non-acceptable by society was in Montogomeryshire during the 1800's and early 1900's with regard to people having children outside of wedlock. I have one source that tells me it was absolutely unacceptable, another source that tells me that it was quite common in those days, that people could easily have several children with the same man prior to marrying mostly because it was too expensive to marry. Can anyone give me any information on this or direct me as to where I might find it out.
