Fresh figures show that 57 per cent choose the single life as they say it is more rewarding.
And they say the figures revealed the failure of Labour’s policies focusing on state handouts and getting mothers into work – rather than the men who can support them.
At present, there is no tax incentive for mothers to marry the fathers of their children. A report into the findings for centre-right think-tank the Centre for Policy Studies said there is growing evidence that ‘lone motherhood is less a result of relationship breakdown, more a lifestyle choice’.
The conclusion runs counter to claims, made by pressure groups for single parents, that women most often become lone mothers because of divorce or separation.

The result of all this was that many women and girls decided they no longer needed their children's fathers to be part of the family unit.
This has given rise to an increasing number of women-only households where fathers have been written out of the family script for three or four generations or more.
The consequences of such family disintegration - as is now indisputable - are in general catastrophic for both individuals and for society.
