    Default Single Dads Have More Health Problems

    Beth Levine

    In romantic comedies, single dads are typically fun and happy, needing just the love of a good woman to make their worlds perfect. Sadly, the reality is not nearly so positive. In fact, new research suggests that fathers raising their children alone are at higher risk for health problems than their peers who have a partner to share the family responsibilities.

    What makes these results interesting is most of these single dads "....were 45 or older, and had been married." In my humble opinion, formerly married men faced with trying to raise children probably get hit with a serious dose of reality once the woman is no longer around. Most men don't have a clue how hard women work to keep a family functioning....that is...until the shoe is on the other foot. I think I see why these guys were having problems!

    Thank you, Mr. Wizard, for your sensitivity in the way families share the load. I'm grateful that my four were all grown and gone before my husband died. Looking back, though, I would be hard put to say which was more stressful: living with a sociopath in a failed marriage, or managing alone (as sole support) with two daughters for the five years between marriages. Sadly, women's contribution is rarely appreciated —at home or in the workplace.
