Am I a single mom?

This question has been running through my head for a long time now. I got pregnant with my son and his father an I split up before he was even born. And it stayed that way. (yes he is an active part of Jiovonni's life, not a dead-beat) but when my son was younger I started dating this other guy. We've been dating for quite some time. And we're pregnant together. But, he's always around and he loves my son as if he were his own. My boyfriend doesn't make an decisions for my son.. He just kind of hangs around when Jiovonni is at my house.. I'm a little confused. Does this make me a non-single mommy?

I always say that a single mom is someone who is not romantically involved with the father of her child.  So yes you are a single mom, but not a single person.  Does that make sense?? LOL!

That makes perfect sense. I think that's actually a pretty good explanation. Lol, thanks!

 I say I am a single mother. I have been living with the same man for the last 4 years. but I don't expect him to pay for the children. that is my job. he helps with bills and what he does for the children is his choice but I don't expect him to do it. Yes I am a single mother. I pay and take care of my children.

 You[re a single mom to your child.  But you and your s/o are considered a couple.

You're a single mom until you are married.
