  • To me a single mom is a mother of a child who is not married or involved with the father or any other man. I believe even if they are living with their parents they would still be single. .

  • So I'm not the only one who thinks if you're in a serious relationship with your "baby daddy" and you're not married, you're still not a single mom, right?-op

  • Pretty much, OP. It annoys me that they call themselves single when they're not.

  • Technically, any unmarried woman is a single mother, but if someone is all but married to their SO, they are pretty much not single parents anymore.
