Looking for Mr. Right? Older Single Women Who Become Mothers.
Siegel, Judith M.
Journal of Family Issues, v16 n2 p194-211 Mar 1995
Examines why older, single women become mothers and how their premotherhood motivation and experience compare to those of demographically-similar married mothers. The composite picture that emerged from the single mothers was one of ambivalence toward marriage: a combination of an idealized image of marriage and an unwillingness to accept compromise as an essential relationship strategy.
