1.10 Family Structure

When asked whether their parents had ever been divorced, there was no significant difference between furries and non-furries with regard to frequency. On average, furries have 1.7 siblings. Of furries with at least 1 sibling, more reported being the oldest child (47.5%) than either the youngest child (34.5%) or the middle child (18.0%). Approximately 15% of furries reported being an only child. Only 3.8% of furries report having any children, likely owing to their relatively young age or the nature of their relationships (single, non-married, non-committed). To test this, a potential follow-up question may ask whether furries are interested in one day having children.1
