Women with children are attractive patners, according to new research from the University of Bergen.
2404 single students participated in the research that shows having children increased the chance of a woman finding a partner, NRK writes.
“Previous findings have indicated that women who have children are considered less attractive and therefore less likely to find a partner,” Eilin K. Erevik, associate professor at the Department of Social Psychology, told the channel.
Erevik believes that research may mean that attitudes towards single mothers have changed.
The researchers do not know why the female students who participated in the research were able to find partners easily but Erevik still has some theories.
“Research shows that those who have children look for other things in a partner than those who do not have children. Maybe there is less competition for them,” the researcher told NRK.
Erevik believes that it may also be that those who are alone with the care of a child may have a greater need for a partner.
