@JonnyTrauma people have preferences. I am a single parent. When I think of men who are single parents these things runs through my head: why isn't he with his family, how often is he with his children, how much time and effort is he putting towards them, is he committed to actually being a father, does he respect his ex even through all the BS. I don't think I would concern myself with whether or not he and the ex would get back together, or whether or not I am his first priority. I actually would be highly disappointed if he put me before his children because I would feel that he isn't really parenting well if that was the case (under reasonable circumstances). I'm sure men have the same thoughts about single parent moms too. The other thing is typically women are much more difficult to deal with then men. A single dad vs a single mom with baggage and baby parent drama, more likely the single dad will have baby mama issues that exceed what women are willing to put up with. Single moms normally have loser ex's who tend not to be involved at all, or very minimally. Not saying it can't happen the other way around, but females = drama all around.

Because it's drama. Kids often don't like step parents for a variety of reasons, kids often interfere with plans (One gets sick, babysitter cancels, etc). Also, a lot of people don't want to deal with the work that goes into raising children unless they're their own.
