My mother is a single mother and it wasn't by choice. My dad bounced out when I was 6 months old and never turned around. She did it on her own without depending on any man for anything. She raised me to do the same. Coming from a single mother I think you have issues that you need to look into. She never got remarried, I hate when men think that we need a father in the child's life. Women are strong enough to do it on their own.
