Poverty level wages, single motherhood, some things just can't be helped
Just read this article and I just don't get how they can pinpoint numbers according to races whether it's poverty, single motherhood, etc. Things happen for reasons. Yeah poor desicions, I know. Someone on the comments mentioned about the mom whose 3 times married and divorced has a live in boyfriend on disability and her daughter has 2 kids single mom livng with a boyfriend on ssdi too. And the person said that's setting an example for your children. Bad luck from your parents like divorce effecting the next generation and they end up settling for less. Not denying anything it's true cause I've settled. There's always someone out there for someone but it's not always a knight in shining armour, rather a pawn in rags but still loves us. But really not just this article but in general there's really nothing to be done as far as improving marriage rates and having less single mothers. Why? Because not everyone can meet 'the one' and especially if the mom has two young kids or just one, most guys don't want to be bothered with another man's children/drama with baby daddies. Yeah some of you have been fortunate to get out of single motherhood and marry but not everyone is fortunate. Poverty can be helped if one would strive for work and make an effort. Unless the person is severely disabled of any form where working has to be limited or not working at all which is understandable. Obama's going to build more jobs yes but he can't make better men for women and decrease the numbers in single motherhood. Nothign can be done there.
