30 years ago, I was a single parent.....and I never wished that I had someone else to help me raise my child.......but I do understand that a 2 parent household raising children is a little easier than a single parent household is.......but I wouldn't have settled for just anyone, especially not based on gender.......if fact before I cam to terms with my sexual orientation, I was engaged to be married to a man.......that man, as gentle as he was at times, lost his temper and slapped my child across the face so hard, he left his hand print.......when I finally got my 3 year old to calm down, I went out to talk to him......I grabbed the end of the couch so hard and I spoke in an extremely soft voice.......I don't him if he EVER laid a hand on my child like that again, I'd kill him.........shortly after that, he tried to take his life and our relationship was officially over!!!!<quoted text>
Do you think these moms wished they had a father for their children? i have never met a single mom who didn't wish this.
So, not always is mom and dad always a good environment!!!
Oh and yes, I was already in the process of coming to terms with my sexual orientation......and though he was overall a decent person......I already knew I wasn't IN love with him and would divorce him in less than 2 years of marriage and I value marriage!!!
