My Life as a Single Mom of Two...

 

 

JUST A RANDOM QUESTION...
Current mood: weird
Category: Life

AS TO WHY BEING SINGLE IS ANY DIFFERENT THAN BEING DIVORCED.

I ASK THIS BECAUSE EVERYTHING I FILL OUT IS LIKE...

SINGLE....

MARRIED...

DIVORCED.....

LOL..AND I AM LIKE...WELL...YEAH I AM DIVORCED...BUT THAT MEANS I AM NOW SINGLE....

SO, I CHANGED MY STATUS FROM DIVORCED TO SINGLE. LOL!!! I REALLY DON'T KNOW IF THAT MAKES A WHOLE LOT OF SENSE TO ANYONE AND I AM SURE IT REALLY DOESNT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE TO ANY OF YOU ANYWAY...

BUT JUST A RANDOM THOUGHT......

OKAY, MAYBE I SHOULD STOP "THINKING" NOW.......

I think theonly difference is that there is this imposed stigma put on being "divorced" since marriage is an "institution" that you are not supposed to "fail" at.

So for a lot of people the two are not the same. Tis is just a thought. Have a good day!

Well it does make sense to me. and it does matter to me. i too am now "single" depending on who asks and why. This question has been one i have dealt with before too. so i feel ya.  anyywayyyy. when i meet a guy im interested do i say im divorced or single? once again it depends. single implies never having been married. so i usually level with all men as to my "divorced" status. I am not ashamed at being divorced. its one of the best things that i ever decided to do. despite the hardships. yes still i am happily "Single" now too! You will get there too. sounds like youre well on your way...

Feb. 1, 2008 at 11:52 AM Yeah I mean, I surely get the difference, but at the same time I kinda feel like listing myself as divorced for the rest of my life...I mean I understand I've been married....and that didn't work out....but at the same time....I am not really wanting to list myelf as divorced or a 'failure' forever...sure the person will know that I was married, I am not rrying t hide that......just tired of being classified.....

I always list that I'm single.  Unless you want people to know that you were once married.  I felt like it wasn't any other their business.
