Contrary to popular belief, it is more common for women to have children from different partners than for men. As a rule, children of different fathers live with their mother, in which case the fathers have a "second nest".Research has shown that the ties fathers have with their children from a first relationship tend to be strained. Another finding is that the stereotype of an older man going off with a younger woman and founding another family does not correspond with reality.
