for single moms

How many are single moms? and how many left their husband while pregnant? And if you had no income coming in besides the husband's what do you do? Someone said I can get a government apartment but how with no income?I am 17 weeks pregnant. I am trying to stay with my husband but he is making it hard for me to stay. Hes just so rude.

  • i was a single mom beginning shortly after my daughter's birth over 19 years ago. i am pregnant now and considering being one again - my dh is being a real jackass lately and it's been going on a while. i'm on unemployment and we are making money together on ebay - some days i think it's just finances and convenience that keep us together but then when he knew i was serious about being fine with him leaving he decided to sit down and act like the husband i once knew and loved. where i live i don't think i can get any kind of cash assistance until the baby is born and have not looked into housing - look up section 8 - that is the one thing i can think of that provides housing assistance and not necessarily to people who don't have children but i don't know what the rules are. don't let him blame it on your hormones - even if it is that he needs to learn to deal for the next while IMO

  • get your name on the housing list...our county had a 5 year wait. Start looking for work too...play things cool and plan the work, then work the plan....

    the whole world seems rude today...getting a almost neat guy to be less rude is way easier than single parenting...
