One thought on “Getting Judged and Feeling Judged: National Survey of Single and Married Mothers

  • March 3, 2019 at 2:57 am

    I would be interested to hear if – and how – the unmarried women without children felt judged.

    I know in the U.S. military, if you’re not married and don’t have kids, you receive over $7,000 less annual income (based on a 20-year average & adjusted for inflation). In addition, this demographic is not allowed to be home owners at the outset of their careers. In the Air Force, for example, Airmen without dependents are required to live in the dorms for the first three years of service. And they have it better than most. I started my career with seven years in the Army and had to live in the barracks the entire time. That’s seven years of home equity that I can never make up for.
