Other single parents, do you find that since you've become a single parent people suddenly think it's fine to pry into hyour financial situation and constantly make comments like 'ow you can't afford this or that' or the like?
When I was still with my ex no-one ever pried, but since I have become a single parent people, friends, family, even my exes family are constantly making comments about my financial situation and asking leading and even direct questions about what/if I receive government benefits etc etc. It drives me insane.
As a matter of fact I had a fair amount of money saved up before I had DS, but either way it's none of their business - I often get the feeling people feel better about their own massive debts or something by prying into mine...
Like friends I have who are always going on about an upcoming overseas holiday or renovations or new car etc etc. But I know they're just in debt, not rich! But I wouldn't dream of commenting 'ow you can't afford that you're not on any income and your husband couldn't be on more than $60k a year!' That would just be rude, right? So why do people assume they can pry into mine now just because I'm now single?? This has been going on since DS was born and I've only just now realised how annoying it is! Grrrr
