SPANISH parents have come up trumps when it comes to their children’s stability.
Around 91.5% of children in Spain live with both their natural parents, making it the third most stable country for the under 14s after Finland and Greece.
Social commentators who helped commission the league table say the good positioning of Spain could be because of the countries high emphasis on marriage and family life.
A spokesman said: “Spain is a country that really values family life and marriage is still considered important.
“The older generations have passed down their values onto the younger ones who then strive to create a stable home life for their children.”
The stability league table was commissioned by the organisation of economic co-operation and development in 2007 and looked at every country in the Western World.
Spain was in joint third alongside the much smaller country of Luxembourg.
Britain came 27th in the table which revealed that only two thirds of children 14 or under are still living in the same household as their mum and dad.
