An Associated Press-We TV poll surprised a lot of people when the results indicated that more than 8 out of 10 men said they have always wanted to be a father or think they would like to be a father one day. Men who are already fathers were more likely than women to say they saw positive effects of fatherhood in the love life and career, and they were just as likely as women to say having children improved their overall happiness and sense of purpose in life. Comparing men and women, men who did not have children were just as likely as women without children to say they want them someday. Men were a little more skeptical about their ability to be a good parent, but most of the men surveyed said the main reason they wanted to become fathers was to carry on traditions and family history. 14% of men called that their top reason for wanting to have children, compared with only 4% of women. —Jim L.
