The number of single father households has increased about ninefold since 1960, from less than 300,000 to more than 2.6 million in 2011.
In comparison, the number of single mother households increased more than fourfold during that time period, up to 8.6 million in 2011, from 1.9 million in 1960.
There are some notable differences between single mothers and single fathers.
Single fathers are more likely than single mothers to be living with a cohabiting partner (41% versus 16%).
Compared with fathers heading households with two married parents, single dads are younger, less educated, less financially well-off and less likely to be white.
In this report, fathers include those men who are ages 15 or older, who are the head of their household, and who report living with their own minor children (biological children, step-children or adopted children).
At the same time, the role of fathers has evolved, and the public now acknowledges their importance not only as breadwinners, but also as caregivers.
are you restricted to dating single moms now, or have you had any luck with childless 30 woman?There comes a time and age when a single man settles on the fact that the woman he ends up with will have a ready-made family for him.It’s the price we pay for showing up late to the ball; by the time single guy has defeated the work-force, made his bones, and decides on the whole nuclear family bit at 30 , his queen-to-be will have already danced the dance with another man.Baggage has a lot more faces than merely having children with another man, and they find out harshly that the childless woman may be a big baby herself, looking for a “daddy” to buy her things.So men accept the fact that dating women of a certain age will result in children being almost a certainty, so they either date 19 yr old girls, or own up to the reality that their dating prospects will come with a child. This sounds mad young to me, like something my nightmare of a 22 yr. Yet this comment right here is the leading excuse from women as to why they won’t give single dad a chance.
