Single Moms - do you wish you were married, or do you like being alone?

I am a single mom, and I just love being alone. Especially when I hear my friends complain about their husbands. Someday I think I will want to get married, but I am loving this!

  • I've been married but prefer being single. Being alone does not mean you have to be lonely and I like being alone. I allow SO in my life but won't marry him and won't live with him or anyone. I like my privacy.

  • At first when I broke up from my daughters dad I thought I couldnt make it without him. I love being alone. I dont mind at all. This is really my first time being single, single and I can say "We dont need a man too live" some woman think that becasue i know i did at some point in my life..... We can do it and I am a single mother. He does help me take care of my daughter and I appreciate him for that.

  • I enjoyed my time being single - making the rules by myself, not having to answer to anyone. After leaving a suffocating marriage, it was wonderful! But now I like being married - the man makes all the difference!

  • I love being single. No husband to have to deal with!!! I make my own rules, I set my own schedule, and I answer to no one.

  • well I was single (with two boys) for two years and personally I loved it! I was not looking for anyone! I went to work, came home, always had a clean house, slept in my kids beds, didn't have to worry about having sex if I was too tired. oh .. I miss being single.
    then he found me.. ! still wasn't looking,but he came and stayed.. and been with him since 5 yrs (married 7 mos)
    some days I wish I was single, my house was clean, no one to fight with. I love my husband and my baby girl from him. But somedays I feel like I was meant to be single and raising my kids alone! I don't regret meeting him or I wouldn't have my baby girl :)
