I know a number of women who have started off as single moms and then found a husband later. It needn't be a lifestyle. Besides the fact that there are single moms and there are single moms. Ones that got into that situation through unfortunate choices or circumstances but then made the best of it. And others who are welfare leeches and negligent parents. It's impossible to generalize.

This is FR you're talking about. Generalization and ill will and insults toward anyone not inside our little bubble is the way it is.

My wife, for one.

I was a Vietnam era bride at 16 yrs. old, and by the time I was 19 yrs. old, I was an abandoned wife with two infants.
Funny how the bitter divorced guys seem to always forget there are plenty of women like me.

Anyhow, I got a night job and no sleep for two yrs. I eventually ran into Mr.X, who worked in the same trendy bar as I did, and was a college frat boy at the time. He saw me waiting for one of my three buses to take my sick baby to therapy one day, and gave me a ride. (Get out your handkerchiefs!) It was not love at first sight, it was necessity, it was a life ring to a drowning woman, but it worked. Long story short, after 30 yrs. and a civil divorce, we are still chugging along. I sort of love him without realizing it sometimes!

I imagine that tomorrow will be very hard for single mothers, and you cannot imagine how cruel some people can be (the lesser people with a need to feel superior to somebody) so I hope that the decent ones get a second chance, and try to build a solid family. Above all, GET THE WEDDING RING! None of that "free milk" BS if you have kids...
