New Delhi: A new study has revealed that single mothers are more susceptible to health problems in their midlife than their peers who become mothers after marriage.
Considering that far more women have out-of-wedlock children today than several decades ago, the researchers have predicted the trend could lead to an increasing public health problem as these women enter their midlife. According to the researchers, about 40 per cent of newborns in the United States come from single moms compared with 10 per cent in 1960. Researchers have concluded that the health effects were probably largely a result of the single mothers economic disadvantage. "In the long run, it`s still a case of the socioeconomic disparities that produce all sorts of negative outcomes for people," said William Avison, a sociologist at the University of Western Ontario in Canada. The new study will be published in the Journal American Sociological Review.ANI
