Do single parents have it harder than those of us that are married?

Sometimes I think single parents have it easier than those of us that are married. I just don't understand why we're always so sympatheic towards single parents, yet think that people who parent together have life so much easier. Let me just say...It's not easier. Maybe financially...but other than that, it's probably more difficult.

I think never having a reliable person to lean on in hard times would be harder.

My husband is awesome, so I would have a harder time as a single parent. Why do you think being single is easier?

I din't think either situation is harder or easier. Each has their own set of challenges.

Btw. I am a single mom.

Depends on the situation. My friends is a single mom, no help from the dad at all. She does not have it easier than I do. My other friend shares 50/50 custody of her kids. Aside from missing her kids when they are gone she has told me her life is easier than it was when she was married.

It's twice the work to be a single parent. I was one for a long time. It's much easier co parenting with my DH. We are a great team!

I married an amazing man. I know I have it easier than most single parents.

They each have their own hardships and challenges. One isn't better or worse than another.
