  • I agree that it can be challenging. I was a single mom of 3 and looking back I wouldn't have done it any other way. My x-husband was an abusive jerk and I didn't want to confuse the kids by bringing in other men so I did it alone. I made it through ok and so did the kids

  • Challenging, but also rewarding? I know without a doubt that getting divorced was what was best for my daughter. No regrets for sure.

  • I'm happy honestly, although i must add their dad isn't in the pic. I just have to worry about the kids and me. It can be hard sometimes, not getting me time. But I'm enjoying them as much as I can, luckily I've been able to stay home with them most of the time. No relationship to deal with is sometimes nice.

  • I was ok being a single mom for many many years so I was use to it but I hated it. It's very lonely and now I met and married a nice guy who treats me good and my son so I love being married and don't miss the single days at all.

  • like the world is on your shoulders. But then again, you get that sense of pride because you can do it without him...and you CAN do it without him!
