This.



Single parent is a single person raising a child. Period. lol

<blockquote><b>Quoting You and me + 3:</b>" "my youngst's dad play an active roll in my kids lives." Seems plural to me. My SO is my youngest sons father but is a dad to my daughter so i do not call myself a single mother anymore"</blockquote>




And what was the first part of that sentence? "/my family and/".



And you're still not answering my goddamn question.

I didn't say it was the same thing, I said it can feel like the same thing.



As for the second part, that's where it gets complicated. Sometimes, it's just not as easy as picking up and leaving. I know I've been guilty of saying, just get the hell out or shut up! But, some situations just aren't that easy. I have no other way to explain it.

Yeah, I understand that. For sure. And have sympathy. It just bugs me when people b***h about things and don't do anything about it, even though I know (logically) it's not always that easy.

Sometimes I feel like one. My husband is gone for weeks and months at a time, I can't call or text him, half the time I can't even email him. It's not uncommon for me to go a week or longer without hearing from him. At the end of the day though, when I get over feeling sorry for myself, I know that even when I feel alone I'm not and he would be here if he could be. I'm a married mother who sometimes has to shoulder all the parental responsibility because sometimes life stinks like that. LOL this is strictly a parenting and emotional standpoint. Financially I remember exactly what a struggle it was to raise a child on my own.
