Single mom - what does that mean to you?

If you hear someone refer to themselves as a single mom, do you think the person was never married to their child/ren's father?

Should divorced moms call themselves divorced moms, widowed moms call themselves widowed moms? Is the term single mom soley for those who have never been married?

  • I think something happened in their life to make them single. Either by divorce, becoming a widow, or by never marrying.

  • If they are truly a single parent, not married to anyone, not co-parenting, etc. then i dont really think of their past. single mom means a mom who has no support from any type of father figure for her child, if the mom is single as in no relation ship then you are single but I call it co-parenting even if dad can only have the kids on the weekends
