How long have you been a single mom?  Would you change your circumstances if you could?

This time around, I've been a single mom for just over 5 years.  Before I married my ex-husband I was a single mom to my oldest son for 6 1/2 years.  

Would I change it?  No.  I really am enjoying being a single mom this time around.  I'm independent, free-spirited, and having fun raising my kids. :)

 I have been split from my ex-husband for 4 years.

I wouldn't change it for the world!

I've been a single mom for a  year while were were married because I separated myself from him and then went back. And now I am again without being married for about a year and a half.

Would I change my circumstances? I love my daughter too much to do so. :)

Off and on since January when stbx moved out. We were "working things out" April until recently when he told me he had a gf for a year and a half of our almost 6 year marriage. Then he emailed me last week saying he was filing for divorce.
