    The correct answer is the first option: An increasing divorce rate. Since divorce is the separation of two married people, the number of single parents will increase as the divorce rate increases. The second option is incorrect, because a decrease in the number of individuals who never marry would result in a decrease of single parents. The third option is incorrect because an increase in polygamy (when there is one husband and several wives) would also lead to a decrease in single parents. The last option is incorrect because we have no way of knowing if these individuals who remain childless are single or not.
