According to statistics, US army or navy wives often fit the profile required by surrogacy agencies and commissioning parents because they meet two basic requirements. First, they have a good support system. Second, their husbands are often open to the idea or surrogacy.

It is estimated that 20 percent of the surrogate babies born in the USA each year are carried by a surrogate that is married to a military man, and this cohort represents approximately less than 1 percent of the female population of reproductive age.
