Getting married may be the best way for single men to secure a pay rise, new research has found.

  Getting married may be the best way for single men to secure a pay rise, new research has found.

  Married men can earn up to six per cent more than single men who have similar jobs and who have the equivalent levels of education and experience.

  A married man earns ?5,700 more than an unattached man on a ?100,000 annual salary. But husbands with children are only three per cent better off each year than bachelors.

  The findings also showed that divorced men's salaries are 3.5 per cent higher than their single counterparts.

  The research, which surveyed 1,300 men and women, found the qualities that make men marriage material are also attributes that appeal to employers.

  Belinda Hewitt, a co-author of the report from Queensland University, Australia, said: Married men are more efficient and productive than single men because they have wives who can split the burden of home life which gives them more time to devote to work.

  The report goes on to suggest that while men may benefit financially from marriage, women do not.

  It says that any advantages women would get from marriage are strongly counter-balanced by the negative impact of motherhood.

  Miss Hewitt said: Becoming a mother doubles, even triples, the amount of time that would have to dedicate to the family home.

  This means work is always going to be a second priority, which is reflected in their salary.
