I've always thought of a single mom being a woman who is not married and has children
This, I'm with someone but he's not my kids dad. He doesn't help me, fill in any role in their lives. I do it all myself still.
Quoting MeeshMom:Mom who is not with/married to the father of the child for whatever reason (separated, divorce, never married,death). That's it.
A woman who has children and is not married, whether to the father or someone else.
I think a woman with children can date, even have a steady relationship, and still be a single mother. However, if they're living together, it's more of a gray area...
Any woman who is not with her child(ren)s biological father.
Just, because you have a new man doesn't mean he's totally stepping into the father role.
