I'm a single mom because my marriage was no longer worth being a part of. Both of us were unhappy, and had been unhappy for a couple years, even with trying to make things work (I'll admit, I feel I tried and he did not).  Thankfully we are still on speaking terms and are able to coparent with minimal issues.

He didn't really help much when he was around, he's in the military.  So I spent a lot of time parenting without him anyway so no, I don't wish he was still around.  His presence caused more stress than help for me.

I asked him to leave best decision I made. He decided to not be part of his child's life

My sons father decided he wanted to run around with other women, so I kicked him out so he could be free to do so. My son was two at the time and he was not much help when he was home anyway.

Because he doesn't know what he wants in life, he wants to be free and be as if he didn't have a daughter.. he once told me he wished he lived a double life but he basically was he just got caught..

Im a single mother because he thought beating, verbal abusing, cheating, free loading, drugs, were more important than being a dad.

I could write a book on that subject. My short answer is because I got sick of living with a lazy, self-centered man child who lies all the time.

I'm single because our relationship didn't work out. Neither of us was happy, we were both stressed from outside things like family and jobs. We are actually on friendly terms now and he does see his son most weekends. He's around as much as I'd like.
