Single mothers have the highest self-esteem

madre-soltera Today, women with children no longer respond to the stereotype of the unhappy and unhappy woman. According to a study conducted by a psychologist at the Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany, single mothers feel just as happy, satisfied and fulfilled as single women without dependent children.

Studying more than 10,000 single Spanish women registered on the eDarling partner search website, the psychologist Wiebke Neberich has analyzed satisfaction in different areas. Once the results were obtained, he compared the data of single women and women with children, arriving at a curious result: single mothers feel stronger, hard-working, positive and responsible than those who do not have children .

90 percent of single mothers under 40 consider themselves hard workers, compared to 80 percent of women without children. As the researcher herself explains, “they are young mothers who have to take care of their young children, for this reason they have more responsibility and work harder than an independent woman without children .”

In relation to possible future relationships, women with children were more willing to start a relationship with single parents. When asked “would you accept and maintain a relationship with a man who had a child under 18 years old”, 88 percent of single mothers said they had no problem in this regard, compared to 53 percent of women without children who said that maybe they could try.

The researcher concludes that “single mothers are not only more positive and responsible, but they are also more flexible since they have learned to adapt to the special circumstances that life has thrown at them.”
