The report, Cost of a Child in 2017, estimates the cost of raising a child in the UK, based on the minimum income standard: a threshold calculated according to what members of the public deem essential items for every family. It estimates that families in which both parents work full-time on the national living wage are 13 per cent (or £59 per week) short of what they need to give their children a minimum living standard. Single parents working full-time on the same wage are 18 per cent short: double the shortfall they faced in 2012. Couples and single parents not in work face a shortfall of more than 40 per cent.

Our analysis of data from the Family Resources Survey between 1994 and 2012 shows an alarming widening of ‘the marriage gap’ between the rich and poor.

Among wealthier mothers with children under five, 87 per cent are married compared to only 24 per cent of the poorest earners. The position among the middle income families is not dissimilar. In 1994, 84 per cent were married. By 2012 that figure had dropped to 59 per cent.

Promising to remain faithful will no longer be a legal requirement for marriages in Italy, if a controversial new Bill is passed, it was reported in December.

Its proponents want marriage contracts to contain the same wording as same sex civil partnerships, which were legalised in 2016.

A sperm bank has introduced a mobile phone app, believed to be the first of its kind, for women to select a sperm donor of their choice to father a child. London Sperm Bank Donors, nicknamed the ‘order a daddy’ app, allows women to ‘browse’ potential fathers based on desired characteristics, including physical traits and education level. Critics say that this app promotes eugenics and further undermines and trivialises parenthood, making both father and child a commodity.
