  • I agree with you Luvs, she is in the self pity party. She not only is getting finacial help from the child's father she is also getting finacial support from the boyfriend.

    Now in the IRS eyes, she is a single mother..... Which I see alot of people not getting married because the state pays for so much when you are a "single" parent... disgusting.

  • I think a single mom is someone who is not with a man at all, especially the father of the child. IMO--thats my definition

  • No way is she a single mother!

    A truly single mother is a mother that does it completely on her own, to include NO childsupport.

    I know first hand what it is like to do it ALL on my own and believe me it is almost an insult when a woman has a live in boyfriend that helps with her child saying she is a single mother.

  • If she lives with a man that is not the father of her child, she is a "single"mom as far as parental definition, but if she lives with another man, she is not a single mother financially.

  • If she's getting help with a baby don't think she is all that single:)
    Single mom is a mother that deals with her baby need all by herself

  • To me a single mom is someone that has no partner whatsoever. I don't think your friend is considered a single mom.
