been a single mother?

was it by your choice? or his?

whats the hardest part?

 

3.5 months, his choice, and i would say the emotional part of being a single mother is the hardest.

for over a year

divorce made me a single mother

hardest part, not knowing how my son really feels about us being divorced. He says he understands but does he really understand.

That would be hard! My son is only 2, so hes still young and will most likely grow up with us not being together. Im just afraid he will be confused on why he couldnt be together! And feel like he is missing out on something....

10 months, my choice, the hardest part is sometimes feeling there isn't enough time in a day.

Pretty much the entire time since being a mom (so over 3 years).

He left for someone else.

The hardest part is the sadness I have that my kids will never get to experience an intact family.

4.5 years. He told me he wasn't happy. We talked about trying to work things out and then I found out he had been cheating since right after we got married. O am the one who then started the divorce process.

A year and some odd months.

It was both our choices. He ended it....but when he came running back wanting to work on things this time I said no.

The hardest part for me would have to be dd really loves and misses him but he won't see her even though he claims he wants to. He is just a classic abuser and even though we aren't together tries to manipulate me all the time. Its a little hard to deal with but I thankfully learned through our time broken up that my happiness doesn't rest in him he is only a small part of my life...and I have so many other things to Be happy for.
