Abstract: There is a wealth of literature which focuses on the relationship between family structure and teenage sexual behavior, however very few have examined the differences between single-mother and single-father families. Using the National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health (Add Health) which consists of a nationally representative sample of adolescents from 80 U.S. high schools and 52 middle schools, this study explores the possible differences between single-parent families and their effects on age of first sexual intercourse among teens. There is a familiar point of departure in this study in that effects of single-parent families on age at first sexual intercourse are examine using socialization, parental support model and parental control model. My findings are consistent with the parental support model and parental control model, but provide little support for the socialization perspective.

Abstract: This study explores the income disparity between single mothers and single fathers, using the 2000 U.S. Census of Population and Housing, 5% sample of the Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) data set. Based on the human capital theoretical framework, multiple regression analyses are conducted to explore this income gap. The results indicate that single mothers are in poverty at greater rates than single fathers, when controlling for race/ethnicity, number of own children under 18 residing in the household, age, working hours, weeks worked in last year, rural status, occupation, region, home ownership, transfer income, and unearned income. Single fathers’ earnings are not related to number of children, while single mothers’ earnings decrease with each additional child.

Keywords: Human capital, income disparity, single fathers, single mothers, single-parent households/families

Abstract: Fathers are an important part of the family, but the single-father family is only recently beginning to be studied. To better examine the effect fathers have on children, this research examines the differences in sexual behavior between children from single-mother families and children from single-father families using data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health. We ask whether youth are more or less likely to have ever had sexual intercourse in single-father versus single-mother homes, and we ask whether children of single fathers are more likely to have ever had sex and, among those who have, are more likely to initiate sexual intercourse earlier or later than children of single mothers. This research has implications for understanding the sexual health and behavior of children in single-parent homes and provides information on whether one type of single-parent home needs more policy attention in regard to protecting children from sexual activity in general and early sexual initiation in particular. Using a sample of over 4,000 youth, we found that family structure is not significantly related to respondents’ reports of ever having had sex and having had sex prior to age sixteen, for either males or females. Youth fare equally well in single-father as single-mother homes, as related to having had sexual intercourse and early initiation of sexual intercourse. Implications of these findings are discussed.

Abstract: Single-father families are the fastest growing family group in the United States yet little research has examined this group. To better examine the effect fathers have on children, this research examines the differences in sexual behavior between children from single-mother families and children from single-father families using data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health. We ask whether youth are more or less likely to have ever had sexual intercourse in single-father versus single-mother homes, and we ask whether children of single fathers are more likely to have ever had sex and, among those who have, are more likely to initiate sexual intercourse earlier or later than children of single mothers. This research has implications for understanding the sexual health and behavior of children in single-parent homes and provides information on whether one type of single-parent home needs more policy attention in regard to protecting children from sexual activity in general and early sexual initiation in particular.

Abstract: The new reproductive technologies (NRTs) such as in-vitro fertilization, egg donation, and gestational surrogacy have made possible various postmodern family forms. Here I highlight another emerging family form that has received little attention from sociologists: single fathers by choice (SFCs). This demographically small, but growing, family form is created by single men—both gay and straight—who become fathers with the assistance of egg donors and surrogates. Here, I focus more specifically on heterosexual men who choose single fatherhood. This raises several important questions for gender and family studies scholars: How are these families viewed relative to other family forms--especially the ideologically dominant “traditional” family? Where do SFCs fit in terms of existing cultural types of masculinity and fatherhood? How do we culturally understand heterosexual men’s desires for children and fatherhood without a female partner? I analyze media framing of intentional single fatherhood to explore cultural sense-making of this family form. I identify three core themes or frame sets used: 1) viewing men and women as similar, but ultimately different, 2) addressing the tension between bachelorhood and fatherhood, and 3) representing the gender of paternal desire in multiple and conflicting ways within and across different time periods of media coverage. Overall, I argue that further investigations of intentional single fatherhood can help us explore issues about the changing norms and practices of men as fathers.
