Do single people harm economic growth?

http://www.bjreview.com/Opinion/201709/W020170911629075344077.jpg
(BJReview) About 20 million people aged between 20 and 39 live alone in China. In a recent report from South China Morning Post, some economic experts said a large population of single people poses obstacles to economic growth. The assertion sparked controversy the moment it was put forward.Some argue that single people don't need to shoulder the task of supporting a family or raising children as married people do, so they would be less motivated to work hard. Unlike married people, in particular those who become parents, singletons have no need to buy baby care products or pay for children's education. Therefore, singletons spend less money than married ones.

And what about the impact of divorces that has on society? kids that are living with only one parent have far higher rates of crime, drug use etc...
kids who live with their mothers will be more likely to be living in poverty, as maintenance for kids is rarely pursued in China. There are fathers as well who have to struggle to raise their kid/s alone without any help.
I think the war against single people is just jealousy...

Well it's simple get China to join the EU asap

Then all the single mothers and kids can all flock to UK while we are still in it and they will be given houses, money and a shop for a Chinese takeaway
