Britain Has More Single Moms Than Any Other European Country

A statistical analysis by Eurostat revealed that Britain has more single parent households than any other major country in Europe — second only to the "tiny" Estonia, which has a slightly higher percentage.

The study suggests a correlation between British tax laws that require married couples with children to pay 73% of the taxes that a single, childless person has to pay, and the dearth of two parent households.


While we can't say for sure, if this study is correct and people are dodging the higher taxes that come with marriage, there may be a whole lot of couples living in some sort of reverse Spaced situation as we speak.
