Abstract The literature on father absence is frequently criticized for its use of cross-sectional data and methods that fail to take account of possible omitted variable bias and reverse causality. We review studies that have responded to this critique by employing a variety of innovative research designs to identify the causal effect of father absence, including studies using lagged dependent variable models, growth curve models, individual fixed effects models, sibling fixed effects models, natural experiments, and propensity score matching models. Our assessment is that studies using more rigorous designs continue to find negative effects of father absence on offspring well-being, although the magnitude of these effects is smaller than what is found using traditional cross-sectional designs.
Inpsychologist Dorothy Dinnerstein in The Mermaid and the Minotaur released in the United Kingdom as The Hand That Rocks The Cradle and The Ruling of the World  speculated that the change to this type of upbringing from the archetypal female-dependent and female-dominated childhood especially in infancy and early childhood prevents developing in boys' psychology a type of compulsive dominanceaggression and narcissism and in girls' psychology a type of compulsive co-dependence or "inverse narcissism" and passivity or passive-aggression and would allow both sexes better access to cognitive and emotional processing and assertiveness skills and prevent problems with dissociation.
Child psychiatrists Kyle Pruett and Stanley Greenspan have also considered the needs children have for care by their fathers and how they are helped by this type of marriage. They have lower rates of school absenteeism and higher school achievement scores.
The study found that five-year-olds whose mothers had been unengaged in paid work had more emotional and behavioral problems than those who had mothers who worked. The longer the mother was out of the paid workforce the greater the behavioral problems.
The study did not look at the impact of reduced costs in peer married from reduced risks of developmental problems for children and reduced risk of divorce in the economic analysis.
Current taxation and benefits issues in the United States that discriminate against this type of family can impose costs Father absenteeism reduce net income. Income tax penalties to peer marrieds and tax subsidies to sole breadwinners and nonearning parents[ edit ] This section may need to be rewritten entirely to comply with Wikipedia's quality standards.

The discussion page may contain suggestions. January The specific issue of taxation of these families in the United States has been analyzed in a number of contexts.
Progressivity in earned income, passive income and capital gains rates, together with fictional income splitting for tax measurement purposes, creates this problem, which also means that the two-earner families subsidize sole breadwinner families.
The tax system subsidizes a family, whether married or not, where the uncompensated work of the home is done by one partner, and all earnings are held by the other partner.
Because of income splitting and certain progressive benefit distribution to dependent spouses through Social Security and Medicaresole breadwinner families at the same levels of income as two-earner families pay substantially lower taxes.
Over time, this puts accelerating pressure on a family to have only one partner with earned income and the other do unpaid work of the family. The tax system imposes a "marriage penalty" on this as a result of the fictional combined measurement of earned income through income splitting.
The National Bureau of Economic Research reported a study showing "that two earner couples—the horses that pull our economic plow—pay for the second job with taxes that are far beyond the well known marriage penalty. Representative and former Presidential candidate Ron Paulinvestor Warren Buffettand investor George Soros and others have highlighted and criticized, although none has focused fully on the implications of the U.
Justin Wolfers sees the tax penalty on these couples as sufficient to make cohabitation preferable and thus to create a disincentive to have children inside marriage, or to marry at all, in the United States.
A proposal by Mike Lee also adds peer-married and debt-financed subsidies to this type of family. This, again, is a construct that has a baseline, or default, assumption of one primary parent responsible for a child, rather than two.
This problem is exacerbated by the fact Social Security and Medicare taxes are collected only on wage income passive income such as capital and property earnings are exempt and benefits are progressive. This means that the chief tax burden for the programs is carried by two-earner families with wages that range between the mid-range and the cap and these families also receive fewer benefits than any other family structure or set-up.
Impact of current social security reform proposals and recent Medicare tax reform[ edit ] Proposals to "raise the cap" will continue to place an extra burden on 2-earner families where each partner has earned income not capital gains or other property-based income that is exempt from the tax.
The Affordable Care Act added a tax on passive income and capital gains to support Medicare but it is not known if this is sufficient to prevent the heavy burden faced by two-earner families in subsidizing sole breadwinner families and especially the burden faced by two-earner families with wages between the mid-range and the cap.
No such tax is yet imposed to support progressivity in Social Security benefits.Note: The following post accompanies Takuan Seiyo’s latest attheheels.com are being kept “sticky” until tonight. Scroll down for other posts that have appeared since Wednesday.
