  • I would say you was not a single mum as you do have someone there for you who helps with your child.

  • no, because you have help..if he is helping take care of your child, youre not doing it alone. single moms do EVERYTHING with no help!!

  • No, and not because you have help, but because you are not a single mom. You are a mom in a committed relationship, that's not single.

  • I'm a truly single mom. I have never had help.. have never dated someone who has had either voluntarily or involuntarily taken responsibility for my son. I found out I was pregnant when I was 17 and well into my 2nd trimester
