With divorce rates so high these days, there are a lot of single fathers out there. It can be tough for single fathers; according to a new study on Stats Canada, divorce tends to hit men harder emotionally. Men who are divorced or separated are 6 times more likely to have episodes of depression than someone who remains with their spouse, contributing factors being the lack of support and separation from the kids.
