Single father dating statistics sex dating in howell georgia
Single fathers are more likely than single mothers to be living with a cohabiting partner (41% versus 16%).
Like single mothers, single fathers are typically less educated and less well-off than their married counterparts. However, single father householders differ from single mother householders on several indicators.

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.
While just 8% of married fathers are younger than 30, this share is 18% for single fathers and 23% for single mothers.
And at the other end of the age spectrum, fully 47% of single fathers are 40 years or older.
