A U.S. Census Bureau article┬ádiscusses a study of how Stepfathers are identified by their step-children. Men’s Fertility Report claims that in the United States 4 Million men live with children of a spouse or partner. 1.8 Million of those do not also live with their own biological or adopted children. The study found that 59.9 percent are identified by their step-children as a step-father. 40.1 percent do not. Younger children are less likely to identify their step-fathers as step-fathers than older children. I’m not certain what this means exactly. It could show what percentage of children adapt to their step-father’s presence or are socialized into calling them by their role title.
