    Well the number of single family households has increased from about 9.6 million in 2000 to about 13 million in 2009, the majority of these single parent households are a result of divorce.  Then you factor in modern changes like the number of women choosing to have babies without fathers (that modern technology, I tell ya), and the increasing number of homosexual households that in some states are not counted as couples and a parent may be counted as a single parent.

    I agree with Contrice but if we look on a very broad level there are more children with fathers now compared to hundreds of years ago and during wars because the fathers would die younger or be killed in war.
