The latest figures from Eurostat show almost one in four UK children were found to be living in single parent households in 2012. Commenting on the findings Harry Benson, Research Director for the Marriage Foundation, said: “These children are less likely to attain qualifications, more prone to experience unemployment and are more likely to commit crime. He argued that the rising number of lone parents is not due to a rising divorce rate, but rather it is because of “the meteoric rise in the number of children brought up by unmarried parents”. It is vital, Benson concluded, that society “restore trust and confidence in marriage for the sake of generations to come”.
