Parents of twins or triplets are more likely to separate according to a survey by Britain's Twins and Multiple Births Association (TAMBA), Reuters reports.

TAMBA found a correlation between the number of separated couples and their financial situations. Twenty-right percent of parents of twins or triplets split up, four percent higher than parents of non-twins. And 62 percent of parents with twins said they were financially worse-off after the birth of their children, compared with 40 percent of parents of non-twins.

Mother of twins Suzanne Pammen said, "We love our twin boys dearly, but have spent much of the last two years sick with worry, just trying to give them the basics."
